    OLIVIA KIERNAN In Person With Paul CTFM

    OLIVIA KIERNAN chats with Paul Burke about her new novel THE MURDER BOX, Frankie Sheehan, Ireland, police procedurals and finding out what kind of person you are during covid period.

    THE MURDER BOX: At first, Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan believes the murder mystery game sent to her office is a birthday gift from one of her colleagues. But when Frankie studies the game's contents, she notices a striking resemblance between the 'murder victim' and missing twenty-two-year-old Lydia Callin.
    As Frankie and her team investigate, a series of grisly crimes connected to the game are discovered across Dublin city and Lydia's involvement with a shadowy network of murder mystery players becomes clear.
    On the hunt for Lydia's murderer, Frankie is drawn more deeply into the game. Every successful move brings her closer to the killer. But the real question is not what happens should she lose -- but what happens if she wins.

    OLIVIA KIERNAN is an Irish writer. In a previous life, she completed a diploma in anatomy and physiology then a BSc in Chiropractic before she succumbed to the creative itch and embarked on an MA in Creative writing. In 2015, she began writing PLAY DEAD FOR ME (formerly titled Too Close to Breathe), a crime thriller that was published in 2018 and features Dublin detective, Frankie Sheehan. THE KILLER IN ME and IF LOOKS COULD KILL followed soon after. The fourth in the series THE MURDER BOX publishes on July 22nd 2021

    KIM NEWMAN INTERVIEW Barry's Blu-rays Special

    KIM NEWMAN INTERVIEW Barry's Blu-rays Special

    The latest Blu-ray and DVD releases from BARRY FORSHAW - LINE OF DUTY to Rupert Davies' MAIGRET. Also an interview with KIM NEWMAN about his novel due in November SOMETHING MORE THAN NIGHT, also horror, Hollywood and modelling villains on Elon Musk.

    SOMETHING MORE THAN NIGHT: Hollywood, the late 1930s. Raymond Chandler writes detective stories for pulp magazines, and drinks more than he should. Boris Karloff plays monsters in the movies, and is a genial, cricket-playing member of the British filmland colony on the shores of the Pacific. Both understand that these streets are dark with something more than night. Together, these English public school men in exile investigate mysterious matters in a town run by human and inhuman monsters. Under Home House, the mock gothic mock mansion of a film mogul, is a mad science dungeon just like in the movies – where an experiment has gone dangerously wrong, or even more dangerously right. Fiery death spills onto Sunset Boulevard. Fired by the DA, investigator John Devlin enlists Ray and Billy – Chandler and Pratt (Karloff) – to work the case, which threatens to expose Hollywood's most horrific secrets. And, oh yes, monsters aren’t just for the movies.

    KIM NEWMAN  is a well known and respected author and movie critic, known for his acclaimed Anno Dracula series. He writes regularly for Empire magazine and contributes to The Guardian, The Times, Time Out and others. He makes frequent appearances on radio and TV. He has won the Bram Stoker, International Horror Guild, British Fantasy and British Science Fiction Awards and been nominated for the Hugo, World Fantasy, and James Herbert Awards.
    BARRY FORSHAW is fiction critic for the Financial Times and provides extras for Blu-rays. Books include Crime Fiction: A Reader’s Guide, the Keating Award-winning Brit Noir, British Crime Writing: An Encyclopedia (also a Keating winner), British Gothic Cinema, Italian Cinema: Arthouse to Exploitation, Sex and Film and BFI Classics: War of the Worlds. He edits Crime Time.

    LAURA LIPPMAN In Person With Paul CTFM

    LAURA LIPPMAN talks to Paul Burke about her new novel DREAM GIRL, Baltimore, #Me TOO and racism and why being a writer is a little like playing for a living.

    DREAM GIRL: Gerry Anderson has been having trouble sleeping. He's unwell - bed-bound - and has only his night nurse and his personal assistant for company. But what's really troubling him are the phone calls. Phone calls from a woman claiming to be the 'real' Aubrey.
    But that can't be. Aubrey's just a character Gerry made up in a book, years ago.
    Can Gerry see past the ever-blurring lines of fact and fiction and figure out who is threatening him, or has his long-overdue moment of reckoning finally arrived?

    Laura Lippman has been awarded every major prize in crime fiction. Since the publication of What the Dead Know, each of her hardcovers has hit the New York Times bestseller list. A recent recipient of the first-ever Mayor's Prize, she lives in Baltimore, New Orleans and New York City with her family. To Find out more about Laura visit www.lauralippman.com

    VASEEM KHAN In Person With Paul CTFM

    VASEEM KHAN talks to Paul Burke about his new book THE DYING DAY, Persis Wadia, Ashwin Chopra, Indian independence, modern day Mumbai and an inherited elephant.

    THE DYING DAY: for over a century, one of the world's great treasures, a six-hundred-year-old copy of Dante's The Divine Comedy, has been safely housed at Bombay's Asiatic Society. But when it vanishes, together with the man charged with its care, British scholar and war hero, John Healy, the case lands on Inspector Persis Wadia's desk.
    Uncovering a series of complex riddles written in verse, Persis - together with English forensic scientist Archie Blackfinch - is soon on the trail. But then they discover the first body.
    As the death toll mounts it becomes evident that someone else is also pursuing this priceless artefact and will stop at nothing to possess it . . .
    Harking back to an era of darkness, this second thriller in the Malabar House series pits Persis, once again, against her peers, a changing India, and an evil of limitless intent.

    Vaseem Khan is the author of two crime series set in India, the Baby Ganesh Agency series set in modern Mumbai, and the Malabar House historical crime novels set in 1950s Bombay. His first book, The UNEXPECTED INHERITANCE OF INSPECTOR CHOPRA, was a Times bestseller and an Amazon Best Debut, now translated into 15 languages. The second in the series THE PERPLEXING THEFT OF THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN won the 2017 Shamus Award for Best Original Private Investigator Paperback. The first novel in his new historical crime series, MIDNIGHT AT MALABAR HOUSE, features India's first female police detective, and won the Crime Writers' Association Historical Dagger. The second, THE DYING DAY, is out in July 2021 and follows the theft of a 600-year-old copy of Dante's The Divine Comedy from Bombay's Asiatic Society.
    Vaseem's aim with his books is to take readers on a journey to the heart of India, showcasing both the colour and darker aspects of this incredible country. Vaseem was born in England, but spent a decade working in India as a management consultant. When he's not writing, he works at the Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science at University College London. In 2018, he was awarded the Eastern Eye Arts, Culture and Theatre Award for Literature.
