Noir in a Cold Climate with Will Dean, Nick Quantrill and Nick Triplow

by The Leeds Library


Leeds Lit Fest presents

Three of the countries leading crime writers – Will Dean, Nick Quantrill and Nick Triplow – come together to discuss their books and what it takes to write crime fiction particularly if your location is an unusual or an unfashionable one.

Will Dean grew up in the East Midlands and has since settled in rural Sweden. His debut novel, Dark Pines, was selected for Zoe Ball’s Book Club, shortlisted for the Guardian Not the Booker Prize and named a Telegraph book of the year. The second book in the series, Red Snow, is now out in paperback.

Hull’s Nick Quantrill is the author of a trilogy of Private Investigator novels featuring Joe Geraghty published by Fahrenheit Press.

London’s Nick Triplow is the author of ‘Getting Carter: Ted Lewis and the birth of Brit Noir’, crime novel ‘Frank’s Wild Years’ and numerous social history books.

Both Nicks are co-founders and directors of Hull Noir.

Tickets are £8, or £6 if you are a Leeds Library Member. Please show your card on the day.
