crimefest: thursday may 24. 2.40-3.30.

If you plan to be at Crimefest in Bristol this year I am taking part in a panel which looks fascinating: Killers & Cops: Which Side of The Law Are You On ? Matt Hilton is in the chair, and I\'m on the panel with Chris Carter, Steven Dunne, and Lesley Horton. It has always seemed to me that in Britain now we have taken a very transAtlantic view of the issue of character. I\'m not talking here about in fiction, but in public life. We seem to think that only good people can do good things, and bad people bad things. How much better to reflect real life in crime fiction. Evil is often driven to do good as a form of salvation. Anyway - more of that at the panel. See you there.
