Julie Anderson and fellow authors Lesley Kelly and Eve Smith discussed their crime novels ranging from pandemics to plague, and the curious parallels with life during Covid 19. Hosted by Dr Jacky Collins, also known as Dr Noir,  of Honey and Stag Literary Events. Watch HERE.

Lesley’s latest novel in The Health of Strangers series is Death at the Plague Museum.
The North Edinburgh Health Enforcement Team will hunt you down if you miss your monthly Health Check.  Dealing with murder, politics and intrigue, the HET’s biggest problem is keeping themselves alive.  The series is set in a parallel Edinburgh where people are trying to survive a killer virus – it was fiction when it was written!

Eve’s novel The Waiting Rooms swings from South Africa to England: following one woman’s hunt for her birth mother in an
all-too-believable near future in which an antibiotic crisis has decimated the population. A prescient, thrilling debut.
