In this episode Elly and I discuss:
- Why so many people have been turning to mysteries during the pandemic.
- How to get readers to take a leap of faith and what you must do in return.
- Making sure that the right clue appears at the right time in a mystery novel.
Plus, her #1 tip for writers.

The Postscript Murders
Murder leaps off the page when crime novelists begin to turn up dead in this intricate new novel by internationally best-selling author Elly Griffiths, a literary mystery perfect for fans of Anthony Horowitz and Agatha Christie.
The Night Hawks
There’s nothing Ruth Galloway hates more than amateur archaeologists, but when a group of them stumble upon Bronze Age artifacts alongside a dead body, she finds herself thrust into their midst—and into the crosshairs of a string of murders circling ever closer.
The Midnight Hour
The Brighton police force is on the hunt for another killer, but this time they have some competition—a newly formed all-women’s private eye firm, led by none other than the police chief’s wife.
