Two crime writers from the South East. Anna Sayburn Lane lives in Deal but finds her inspiration in Dickens’ Rochester and North Kent in her new thriller Folly Ditch, in which her tireless investigator Helen Oddfellow finds low crime in high places.
The series has been described as “the thinking person’s Dan Brown”. William Shaw’s detective Alexandra Cupidi hunts down criminals on Dungeness. The Trawlerman (2021) was reviewed as “an atmospheric thriller mixing a twisting plot with a considered meditation on the lasting effects of close contact with violence”.
