Private investigators are cool. FACT. End of discussion. Four talented writers who never have reason to be shamed of their shamus discuss how the private eye has evolved.

Femi Kayode introduces the brilliant Philip Taiwo to the world in his powerfully suspenseful debut Lightseekers, set in his native Nigeria. Robert Crais is the creator of the iconic PI Elvis Cole and his sidekick Joe Pike who return in the pulsating Racing the Light. Holly Watt’s tenacious journalist Casey Benedict makes her fourth outing in the electrifying international thriller The End of the Game. Tim Weaver’s David Raker series goes from strength to strength and the missing persons investigator is in scintillating form in The Last Goodbye. Author Doug Johnstone will keep a private eye on proceedings.
