Three Crime Panel: The Curzon Group

6.30pm (doors open at 6pm)
Shepherd's Bush Library

Crime Writers available for questioning.
Panel includes Leigh Russell, Matt Lynn, Tom Cain and Richard Jay Parker

Leigh Russell's CUT SHORT, published last year, was a runaway success with two reprints in six months. Jeffery Deaver wrote: "CUT SHORT is a stylish, top-of-the-line crime tale, a seamless blending of psychological sophistication and gritty police procedure. And you're just plain going to love DI Geraldine Steel." The second in the series, ROAD CLOSED, hits the shelves in June 2010, with DEAD END following in 2011. Leigh is currently researching the fourth in the Geraldine Steel series.

Matt Lynn is the author of the 'Death Inc.' series of military thrillers. 'Death Force' was published last year, and made the best-seller charts. "Up there with the finest that Andy McNabb or Chris Ryan have ever penned," wrote the News of the World. It's been published in Japan, Holland and Greece. The sequel 'Fire Force' is out this year, with 'Shadow Force' scheduled for 2011. Previously, Matt was the ghost-writer of several number one best-sellers.

Tom Cain is the pseudonym for an award-winning journalist, with 25 years' experience working for Fleet Street newspapers, as well as major magazines in Britain and the US. He has edited four magazines, published over a dozen books, written film-scripts and been translated into some 20 languages. 'The Accident Man' thrilled the critics. The Guardian wrote: 'The Bourne Movies meets Frederick Forsyth'.

Richard Jay Parker worked in TV for 20 years as a script writer, script editor and producer. STOP ME is his fiendishly dark, twisty debut thriller novel about a global killer who can only be stopped by forwarding a SPAM email. Simon Kernick said: 'Tightly written, fast paced and keeps you turning the pages.'
