Thanks for the tip, Karen! Now, shall we do the hat-trick I wonder?

For once I'm down south on those dates, but already booked! Grrr.

Luckily, there's a really good crime component to the Edinburgh book festival this year. (Including a couple of favourites, even.) So I'll be able to get my fix on my own doorstep for once!

I wonder if they plan a crime fiction quiz?
