With Val Mcdermid, Michael Robotham and J.P pomare

Facilitated by Whanganui Crown Solicitor Michele Wilkinson-Smith.

Join three of the world’s finest crime writers as they swing into a town near you for one night only. Expect a criminally good night!

What does it take to be considered crime-writing royalty? Val McDermid knows. With over 18 million copies of her books sold to date and several TV adaptions, she’s on the hunt for her next bestseller. Michael Robotham’s nine-book Joseph O’Loughlin series was a worldwide bestseller and is currently being adapted for the screen. He’s well known for The Secrets She Keeps, now an award-winning TV drama, and his latest book Lying Beside You is making waves in the crime community.

Rotorua-born J.P. Pomare is no stranger to Aotearoa’s shores – his debut novel Call Me Evie won the Ngaio Marsh Award for Best First Novel, and his second book In the Clearing will soon grace our screens via Disney+. The Wrong Woman is his fifth book.
