A new writing festival all about crime fiction is set to take place in Gerrards Cross this autumn.

Held at the Gerrards Cross Community Association’s Memorial Hall on East Common on Saturday, October 7, the new Chiltern Kills festival will feature 70 of the industry’s best crime fiction authors delivering 20 panels and talks.

Some famous names who’ll be attending include Frederick Forsyth, Ruth Ware, Mark Billingham and Sarah Pinborough. They’ll be joined by celebrity names from TV who’ll be moderating panels, real-life professionals from the world of law and order, and many more.

Local author JA Marley will be launching the sequel to his successful thriller novel, London, Interrupted, titled The Unholy Hours. This book will see protagonist Danny Felix thrown into the whirlwind of crime once more after a quiet retirement in the Florida Keys.

Visitors to the festival can also enjoy a specially written play, written by and starring the authors themselves; karaoke led by writer Mark Edwards; one-to-one interviews; signed books; a one-off festival short story anthology; a beer tent; and a huge array of food and drink stalls.

Tickets to the event cost £65. To find out more and book, visit
