On that night the inaugural Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Crime Novel will be presented.
On a panel that night to discuss the state of the modern crime novel with well-known book blogger and crime aficionado, Graham Beattie.:
- Neil Cross
- Michael Robotham
- Simon Kernick
- Vanda Symon
- Burial by Neil Cross
- Cut and Run by Alix Bosco
- Access Road by Maurice Gee
- Bold Blood by Lindy Kelly
- Containment by Vanda Symon
So if you are looking for some New Zealand crime fiction to read, these are obviously starters for your list.
I have only read one of them, so I have a way to go to catch up.
I can get Burial and Access Road from my library.
My Review: CONTAINMENT, Vanda Symon
Attending the Festival:
- International writers including Simon Winchester, Barbara Trapido, Clive Hamilton and Emily Maguire
- A bevy of Kiwi writers, poets and performers including Dave Dobbyn, Roger Hall, Rachael King, Chris Laidlaw and Helen Lowe.
And you can borrow Bold Blood from me Kerrie :)
Thanks Bernadette - that would be great
Much obliged for the mention. Craig is not afraid to think big, I'd say. This is an admirable effort on his part.
