Last Thursday evening at the Harrogate Crime Writing Festival we were proud to see BBC Radio 4’s Mark Lawson present our very own Reginald Hill with the Theakstons Old Peculier Outstanding Contribution to Crime Fiction Award. His speech was warm and witty and full of praise for his editor Julia Wisdom. Although he was a little put out that she had been put up in a luxurious Hotel du Vin suite while he – the prize winner – only had a standard double…
Hill has had forty books published in forty years. His first book, A Clubbable Woman, was published in 1970 and was the first in his hugely successful Dalziel and Pascoe series which went on to become a huge TV hit. His most recent novel, the standalone thriller The Woodcutter, was published last week.
And … as an added bonus, enter our competition to be one of the lucky seven to win the following:
– a SIGNED COPY of Reginald Hill’s Midnight Fugue, the latest Dalziel and Pascoe novel.
– his fantastic new book The Woodcutter
– and two of the recently reissued Joe Sixsmith series.
To win, all you have to do is tell us: what is your favourite Reg Hill book, and why? Answers on a (electronic) postcard to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The competition will close on the 10th August.
