These two masters of the art of crime writing kicked off our 2024 events.

Kicking off our 2024 author events, Mari Hannah and M.W Craven joined us on 3rd of February to discuss all things crime writing.

Mari Hannah’s gripping new thriller is about what happens when someone takes the law into their own hands.

A former probation officer, Mari turned to screenwriting when her career was cut short following an assault on duty. She has since won numerous awards and was Programming Chair of Theakston Old Peculiar Crime Festival in 2019.

‘Terrific police procedural by the inimitable Mari Hannah.’ – Ian Rankin
‘Involving, sophisticated, intelligent and suspenseful – everything a great crime thriller should be.’ – Lee Child

Like Mari, M. W. Craven, is from the north, growing up in Newcastle. Also a former probation officer, he has won numerous awards including an Ian Flemming Steel Dagger.

‘Craven has unleashed Ben Koenig into the thriller world. Long may he raise hell in the pages. A superb thriller that will have everyone talking, and gasping.’ –David Baldacci
