About this Event:
Crime is a family affair for Jane Casey. Married to a criminal barrister, she has a unique insight into the brutal underbelly of urban life, from the smell of a police cell to the darkest motives of a serial killer. This gritty realism has made her books international bestsellers and critical successes; while Detective Sergeant Maeve Kerrigan has quickly become one of the most popular characters in crime fiction. Winner of the Mary Higgins Clark Award for The Stranger You Know, Jane has twice won the Irish Crime Novel of the Year Award and has been nominated for several other prestigious prizes. She is a top ten Sunday Times bestselling author.
Brian Cliff is a visiting research fellow in the School of English at Trinity College Dublin. His recent publications include the Edgar Award-nominated Guilt Rules All: Irish Mystery, Detective, and Crime Fiction, co-edited with Elizabeth Mannion; and Irish Crime Fiction.

She is currently working on a new novel, to be published with Hachette later this year. https://arlenehunt.com/.
