In 2015 The Big Read, run in association with the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, Harrogate is inviting you to discover the tempestuous thriller ‘Blood Shot’, from one of America’s greatest female crime writers. We’re encouraging as many people as possible to read this fast-paced suspense novel this Summer.
The Festival’s Reader-In-Residence David Mark will be touring pubs across the North of England, discussing how Paretsky’s heroine V.I. Warshawski “is the detective many mystery fans have been waiting for” (Newsweek) and why, since her appearance on the mystery scene, detective fiction has never been quite the same!
