The annual Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate happened last weekend and, as always, it was an amazing weekend of crime fiction, bookish antics, parties, and awards. It was a time to rub shoulders with like-minded types who write and read crime fiction, and to catch up with friends and meet new ones. After introductions from the festival organisers and sponsors, each of the six shortlisted authors was presented with a silver tankard and invited to speak about their novel. Clare was presented with the award by Simon Theakston and broadcaster Mark Lawson. I would like to thank my publishers and agent for supporting me, everybody who has read and recommended I Let You Go, and the crime writing community for their endless encouragement.

The Richard and Judy Book Club has shifted an incredible four million titles since it was launched in partnership with WHSmith 18 months ago. I was a young reporter for Yorkshire Television but, occupied as I was, something was missing. I felt oddly dissatisfied. For example, Operation Mincemeat is a book about an elaborate true-life Second World War intelligence scam — British spies hoodwinking the Nazis into believing the Allies are about to invade Greece in reality, Sicily. That kind of story is right up my street but the chances of Judy picking it off a shelf would be about zero. However, Operation Mincemeat was up for consideration for the club, so Judy had to read it.
