Our man in the know, BookNoir voice, Mike Stafford had this to say about Crimefest,
” . . . absolutely loved it. Great people, great panels, had dinner with the Head of Zeus team and met a couple of literary heroes.”

This is what CRIMEFEST say about themselves,
We’re a convention for people who like to read an occasional crime novel as well as for die-hard fanatics. Whether you come with someone or on your own, by the end of the weekend you are likely to have made new friends. Drawing top crime novelists, readers, editors, publishers and reviewers from around the world, CrimeFest gives all delegates the opportunity to celebrate the genre in a friendly, informal and inclusive atmosphere. The programme consists of interviews with its featured and highlighted guest authors; over forty panels with more than a hundred participating authors; a gala awards dinner; and possibly a surprise or two.
They’ve even pre-empted all your possible objections for not going with a comprehensive FAQ.
Better still, we’ve negotiated a 15% discount on Full CrimeFest Passes. The code you need to use, which expires 1 May, is: newbooks
