About The Event
Leeds, West Yorkshire LS1 6AL United Kingdom
So chuffed to be chairing this great panel in the fabulous The Leeds Library with fabulous authors Will Dean, Nick Quantrill and Nick Triplow.
Leeds Lit Fest presents
Three of the country’s leading crime writers – Will Dean, Nick Quantrill and Nick Triplow – come together to discuss their books and what it takes to write crime fiction particularly if your location is an unusual or an unfashionable one. This event will be chaired by crime writer Liz Mistry.
Will Dean grew up in the East Midlands and has since settled in rural Sweden. His debut novel, Dark Pines, was selected for Zoe Ball’s Book Club, shortlisted for the Guardian Not the Booker Prize and named a Telegraph book of the year. The second book in the series, Red Snow, is now out in paperback.
Hull’s Nick Quantrill is the author of a trilogy of Private Investigator novels featuring Joe Geraghty published by Fahrenheit Press.
London’s Nick Triplow is the author of ‘Getting Carter: Ted Lewis and the birth of Brit Noir’, crime novel ‘Frank’s Wild Years’ and numerous social history books.
Both Nicks are co-founders and directors of Hull Noir.
Born in Scotland, Made in Bradford sums up Liz Mistry’s life. Her gritty crime fiction police procedural novels set in Bradford embrace the city she describes as ‘Warm, Rich and Fearless’ whilst exploring the darkness that lurks beneath. Last Request is the first book in her DS Nikki Parekh series with Broken Silence due out in April.
