The 1920s and 30s were unarguably the Golden Age of classic murder mystery and detective fiction with writers such as Agatha Christie, Ngaio Marsh, Margery Allingham, Dorothy L. Sayers and many more enjoying enormous commercial success.

Our contemporary bestselling Derbyshire based crime writer Sarah Ward invites writer, editor and critic Martin Edwards, Britain’s leading authority on Golden Age Crime, and CWA Historical dagger shortlisted author Nicola Upson, whose books feature Golden Age writer Josephine Tey as her detective, to discuss the genre and champion some of its lesser remembered but hugely entertaining creators and protagonists.
