July 2022 marks 50 years since the first Pride March in England, a landmark moment for LGBTQ history and culture. We ask four authors for their very personal views on how representation has changed in crime fiction.
Renaissance Florence is the setting for DV Bishop’s thrilling Cesare Aldo series, the latest of which is the atmospheric The Darkest Sin; American-Norwegian star Alex Dahl continues her mastery of the psychological thriller in the darkly glamorous After She’d Gone; Twenty years on from her stunning debut The Cutting Room, Louise Welsh reprises the iconic gay auctioneer Rilke in The Second Cut; Nicola White’s mesmerising new novel The Burning Boy sees the naked body of a murdered policeman found in Dublin’s gay cruising ground. Crime writer and activist Paul Burston leads the discussion.
