The fun begins on Wednesday, with a launch party that promises plenty of fizz and the chance to meet and greet some of the writers taking part. Elly Griffiths, creator of the best-selling Ruth Galloway series, and crime fighters-turned-crime writers RC Bridgestock are programmed for Thursday, while on Friday, Helen Phifer will be discussing her spooky crime stories with CrimeFictionLover contributor DeathBecomesHer.
