The Flashbang 2012 contest closes at midnight BST on Sunday 15 April. We’ve just heard that Full Weekend Passes to CrimeFest are selling out, so this could be your best bet for a pair of these passes, which come with a high quality canvas delegate bag, a programme and some surprise goodies that include (audio) books. Headliners includes Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver, Paul Doherty, Frederick Forsyth, Sue Grafton, P.D. James, David Hewson, Philip Kerr, Roslund & Hellström, and many, many more. Visit the AUTHORS & DELEGATES page for a complete list, or the PROGRAMME page for details of interviews and panels. There are a few places left on the CRIME WRITING WORKSHOP and TRIPS – including tea in Oxford with Colin Dexter, and a private tour of Agatha Christie’s Devon home. Remember, 150 words (excluding title) could win you TERRIFIC PRIZES in May 2012.
