Oundle, Peterborough PE8
Simon Brett has published over a hundred books, many of them crime novels, including the Charles Paris, Mrs Pargeter, Fethering and Blotto & Twinks series. Two new Fethering novels have been published this year: The Liar in the Library and The Killer in the Choir.
His stand-alone thriller, A Shock to the System, was made into a feature film, starring Michael Caine.
In 2014 Simon was presented with the Crime Writers’ Association’s top award, the Diamond Dagger, and he was made an O.B.E. in the 2016 New Year’s Honours ‘for services to literature’.
‘Simon Brett is one of British crime’s most assured craftsmen, with idiosyncratic characters proving winning creations… A feast of red herrings, broadly drawn characters, and gentle thrills and spills litter the witty plot. Crime writing just like in the good old days, and perfect entertainment.’ The Guardian
‘A new Simon Brett is an event for mystery fans’ P. D. James
We are thrilled to be hosting another visit to Oundle by Simon, who will be talking about his life and work.
