The Queen of Crime

I’m excited to take second billing after Martina Cole in this month’s Crime Reader’s Association Newsletter, in which I’ve written a short piece about revising the Flint series for the Lume ebooks. The Newsletters are archived on the website after three months or so, but to read the current one you will need to sign up to receive it. The March edition covers the award of the prestigious Crime Writer’s Association Diamond Dagger to Martina Cole, Britain’s ‘Queen of Crime’. This is a lifetime achievement award recognizing her two dozen novels, often featuring women in the world of gangsters. So popular is her writing among the criminal fraternity, that I am amused to learn that her works are the most shoplifted books in Britain. Congratulations, Martina!
