New Age Agatha: Benjamin Stevenson, Frances White and Ragnar Jónasson £10/£9

Agatha Christie will forever be the grand dame of British crime fiction and her enduring influence on contemporary writers is unquestionable. Some follow her lead unwittingly, but others proudly pay homage with devilishly twisty Christie-like plots – and these are three of the best. Benjamin Stevenson tips his hat to the Orient Express in the gloriously inventive Everyone on This Train is a Suspect. Frances White’s Voyage of the Damned is a mind-blowing fantasy murder mystery with Agatha (and some Tolkein) in its DNA. Ragnar Jónasson’s Death at the Sanatorium is a stylishly terrifying locked-rom mystery in the finest Christie tradition. 

This event will be chaired by author Vaseem Khan. 

Friday 13th September, 16:30, Golden Lion
