The English Riviera presents its fourth festival of crime and thriller writing in the birthplace of the world’s most widely-read crime writer, Dame Agatha Christie.
Headlining the 2012 festival will be Colin Dexter, creator of the Inspector Morse novels. 2012 sees the 25th anniversary of the first television adaptation of Inspector Morse and it will be marked with a new one-off drama, Endeavour, featuring a younger Morse, played by Shaun Evans, in Oxford in 1965.
Also confirmed in the line up so far is Sophie Hannah, whose critically acclaimed psychological thrillers have recently been adapted for ITV drama. The first in the series, Case Sensitive, was screened earlier this year.
The festival will include further author talks, workshops and competitions.
