One of literature’s most compelling protagonists, Phillip Kerr’s Bernie Gunther, is a classic example of how historical crime fiction can shine a spotlight on the past and on hard truths for the present. Four Bernie Bros will discuss Kerr’s legacy and the future of the genre.

Antonia Hodgson’s The Silver Collar, a rip-roaring revenge story, has established her as a leading voice in the genre; Laura Shepherd-Robinson’s Daughter’s of Night has been a hugely successful follow up to her award-winning debut Blood & Sugar; Abir Mukherjee’s acclaimed India-set Wyndham and Banarjee series has rightly earned a devoted following; S.G. MacLean is the award-winning author of The Seeker historical series set in Cromwell’s London; bestselling historical author SJ Parris will keep order and take notes.
