Underground Crime with Oliver Harris and Eva Dolan

Two of Britain’s promising crime writers come together to discuss morality and murder, crime and the city. Oliver Harris’s second novel Deep Shelter follows Detective Nick Belsey deep into the bowels of subterranean London.

Eva Dolan debut, Long Way Home, is the first in a major new crime series. It focuses on a detective duo that encounter human trafficking, slum landlords, far right extremists and hidden communities on their quest to solve the murder of a local migrant worker.

On a rather nice Friday Afternoon we entered the Central Library in Manchester, which looks great after the refurbishment to listen to two unknown authors to me. They discussed their books and how they came to find their story.

It was an interesting talk; they spoke about the world they found themselves in when researching for the books which drew Oliver down the now not so secret tunnels under London for Eva, well she met a gang master. So you never know who you will meet on your quest for a good story.
