First Monday - A New Evening for Crime Fiction. First Monday is back on October 3rd with a top notch foursome of fearsome wordsmiths (see what we did there?). SJ Watson, who sold more copies of his first novel, Before I Go To Sleep, than people live in most small countries, is with us to talk about his follow up Second Life. Stuart Neville, who has had to build an extension to his house to fit in his many awards, is going to tell us all about So Say The Fallen, the latest in his latest Serena Flanagan series. Antonia Hodgson, who garners so much praise for her Georgian novels that Amazon has had to specially extend her reviews section, is going to fill us in on A Death at Fountains Abbey. And, last but not least, William Ryan, the historical crime novelist's historical crime novelist, will be talking about his latest, The Constant Soldier. Only the finest of moderators could take on this hardy crew and we have one in Karen Robinson, editor of the Times/Sunday Times Crime Club. Phew. This is going to be BIG, First Mondayers - miss it at your peril!
