Dec 13, 2019, 06:00 AM
Creating brilliant detectives is never easy, especially when so many great writers have left their mark on history. Multi-award winning authors John Banville (Benjamin Black), Jane Casey and Roz Watkins reveal who their fictional favourites are and why, and how they make their own characters stand out.

Hosting the chat is Brian Cliff, Assistant Professor of English at Trinity College, Dublin. His most recent book is Irish Crime Fiction (2018), and he has published essays on authors including Emma Donoghue, John Connolly, Tana French, Paul Muldoon, and Deirdre Madden.
