It's a crime! (Or a mystery…)

There will be some 270 events this year, with 207 currently online.  Here’s the selection of crime and thriller authors thus far.  I will start with the biggest names:

For the young adult audience:
Event 688 @19:00 – Anthony Horowitz interviewed by Paul Blezard at the Sheldonian Theatre (tickets £6 to £10).

Finally, I can’t help but mention another event.  I know he has a cookery book out – who’d have imagined that? – but on Saturday 27th March @16:00 Norman Tebbit will be on the stage at Christ Church in discussion with Sophie Grigson.  They will be considering whether recipes change anything.
