The Dangerous 30s – Natalie Marlow, Tom Mead and Louise Hare at Bloody Scotland
September 16, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm£8.00
The 1930s are easily seen as the slightly dowdier cousin of the dazzling, jazz age 20s but these three authors have made it the deadliest of decades. Natalie Marlow’s Needless Alley, an evocative slice of noir set on the backstreets of Birmingham in 1933, is a tale of honey-traps, seedy canal-side bars, and obsession. Tom Mead’s debut Death and the Conjuror is an enthralling Golden Age locked-room mystery which introduces amateur sleuth, and retired stage magician, Joseph Spector. When a woman falls from a second storey window in Louise Hare’s Harlem After Midnight it sets in motion a thought-provoking murder mystery rich in atmosphere.
