Yes, can you believe it – episode 100 of the show – well, the 100th full length show anyway – there are lots of the epilogue shows and Two Minute Tips if you want to trawl the archives, but it’s still a bit of a milestone an I want to thank all of you, whether you’ve been here from the start, back in 2014 or you’re dropping in for your first listen – I really appreciate anyone who tunes in and gets involved with the show.
Befitting of a milestone show, I’ve got a great guest for you today with John Lincoln. John’s new crime novel is Fade To Grey, the start of a gritty new series set in Cardiff and I loved it. John’s got a really interesting backstory, having worked as a music journalist and true crime writer before finally getting around to writing his own crime series.
John Lincoln is the transparent pseudonym of John Williams, the novelist, biographer and crime fiction reviewer for the Mail on Sunday. In his twenties John Williams wrote a book called Into The Badlands, about American crime fiction. His true crime account of a notorious miscarriage of justice, Bloody Valentine, is a cult classic, described by Benjamin Zephaniah as his favourite book. Since then he’s written eight more books including the Cardiff Trilogy of novels and several popular biographies. His crime novel Fade To Grey is out now published by No Exit Press.
