This was the year I thought I’d… Well, a lot of things. One of them was return to Bristol for the CrimeFest.
Hopefully there will be a CrimeFest in 2021 instead, with or without me.
What there was in 2020 was the various CrimeFest awards. One can always vote, wherever one is. Although I have to say I’d have voted more fully had I been furnished with more [crime] books to read. I love crime. Especially for children, because it can be good without being too gruesome.
This year’s winners for the two children’s categories were:
I have actually read Thomas Taylor’s Malamander. Voted for it, too. Whereas I have to admit to not even having known that Kathryn Evans’s Beauty Sleep is a crime novel. I wish I had, but no one sent me the book and I was too tired to chase.
So, more young crime, please?
