Thrilled to be part of the first of these new crime podcasts, which shot up the iTunes charts on its release last week. Mark Billingham, Val McDermid and Kate Harwood talk about great characters, on TV and in crime fiction. I pitch in with a word or two about Marnie Rome, and whether men and women share the same ideas about what makes a 'strong female character'.
Someone Else's Skin won the 2015 Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year, and was a Silver Falchion and Macavity Award finalist in the US. No Other Darkness was a Barry Award finalist. Tastes Like Fear has been longlisted for Theakstons Crime Novel of the Year 2017, and Quieter Than Killing is out now. Thanks for reading. Do get in touch: email@example.com
