The Forensic Legacy of Agatha Christie: Lucy Foley, Tom Hindle and Carla Valentine*
Saturday 17th September from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm Tolbooth, Stirling
Lucy Foley’s stylish The Paris Apartment is in classic Christie territory. When there’s a murder at No. 12 rue des Amants, the list of potential suspects is precisely equal to the number of neighbours. Tom Hindle’s elegant debut A Fatal Crossing sees a mysterious death on a week-long passenger sailing from Southampton to New York. In true Golden Age fashion, there’s more to the misfortune than meets the eye. Keeping everyone right is *Carla Valentine who will join us digitally to explain how her non-fiction book Murder Isn’t Easy details Christie’s extraordinary determination to stay at the cutting edge of forensics, from fingerprint analysis to ballistics.
