From stunning debuts to literary legends there are eighteen fantastic books by UK and Irish writers in contention for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award 2020. Each video will welcome you into one of these authors worlds, as they share with you a little about their longlisted book, their career and how they feel about work being recognised by the most wanted award in crime fiction. You may even find a new author to add to your must read list.
