What is the perfect balance between fact and fiction? Why is Domestic Noir such a popular genre in 2016? Have we entered a second golden age of crime? These are just a few of the discussions enjoyed by our blogger-in-residence, Jamie Bernthal, at his second day of Noirwich Crime Writing Festival.
The countdown to Noirwich Crime Writing Festival has begun! With over 20 headline and fringe events taking place across the city, it’s the biggest and bloodiest festival yet.
