Booking Now Open for all 2012 Festival Hotels

For one long weekend, the greatest crime writing authors gather in one luxurious hotel. It sounds like the perfect set-up for an Agatha Christie novel. And yet in all the sex, violence and corruption crime authors excel at (and that’s just in the bar) there’s always a surprising twist: crime authors are some of the nicest people you’ll meet! Join us for a weekend you won’t forget.

Don’t miss a minute of the drama with our exclusive Weekend Break packages. We are now accepting deposits for 2012 Weekend Break Packages. For just £50 per person secure your place today!
