Written in Blood
Edited by Caroline Oakley, Lindsay Ashford
Written in Blood is a collection of imaginative takes on what constitutes crime fiction... From cunningly concealed bodies to old ladies with enviable inheritances; hard-boiled cops to louche amateur sleuths and families with dangerous secrets, Welsh women writers prove themselves adept at taking an innovative sideways look at man's inhumanity to man – and more especially, woman. There are stories from writers published for the first time and from established writers new to criminal activity. You'll find something here to thrill whether you're a fan of P D James, Val McDermid or Ruth Rendell...
Edited by Lindsay Ashford, Theakston's Award shortlisted author of Strange Blood, and Caroline Oakley, who has been a judge for the Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger.
"the sheer variety and craft of these stories makes for a very satisfying read while reminding us of the drama underlying apparently innocent lives"
