In Money in the Morgue
, Stella Duffy, writer and theatre maker, picks up the threads of an abandoned Mgaio Marsh Inspector Alleyn mystery, and we defy you to spot the joins. It's the tale of a remote New Zealand hospital isolated by storms. Inside are a raged group of soldiers, patients, employees and a killer. Can the appearance of an English detective working in a counterespionage be just a lucky coincidence, or is something more sinister afoot?
Shortlisted for the 2016 man Booker Prize for His Bloody Project
, Graeme Macrae Burnet returned to France for The Accident on the A35
, purporting to be one of two 'discovered' manuscripts by a certain Raymond brunet. Funnily enough the other manuscripts was The Disappearance of Adele Bedeau
, aka, Burnet's debut, written in the tradition of French noir.
