Crime Scene April Newsletter

Welcome to the April round up of crime fiction goodies – download it here:

So, life’s a little different now, isn’t it? However, the crime fiction community has adapted with murderous speed, and we have a range of virtual events to keep you connected and chilled (to the bone). This month’s spotlight is on virtual Noir at the Bar and its virtual sister Noir at the Bar Edinburgh, with details of how you can join in with each one.

Check Elementary V Watson’s blog here for more about Noir at the Bar

There’s also a great new podcast, The Tartan Noir Show, for you to get stuck into, and there are a host of fantastic book releases during April to keep us entertained during lockdown. Please do get behind all your favourite crime fiction authors, as it’s especially difficult to get the word around about a new book at a time like this.

New to the newsletter, we have two book reviews to whet your bloodlust. Lesley Kelly’s Murder at the Music Factory and Neil Broadfoot’s No Place to Die go under the microscope in this month’s edition.

Also, Sandstone Press are giving away FREE sampler copies (to UK only) of the forthcoming latest book in the Gereon Rath Mysteries (basis of the TV series Babylon Berlin) – get in touch and we’ll arrange for you to grab a copy!

As always, I’m keen to hear what you think – let me know your thoughts on the newsletter, and if you want anything added into next month’s edition, drop me a line.

Until then, be as bad as you can be!
