In Conversation about “Body & Soul” and matters attending with Ian Rankin.
The Spiegeltent, 13.45 – 14.45


As a winner of both the Silver and the Diamond Dagger, John Harvey is unquestionably one of Britain’s most outstanding crime writers. In 2014 the publication of the final Charlie Resnick thriller marked Harvey’s retirement. Now, to our delight, Nottingham’s answer to William McIlvanney has returned with positively his last novel of all; the ultimate episode in his darkly compassionate Frank Elder series and he talks about it to fellow crime writing sensation Ian Rankin.
