OxCrimes is not only a striking book but potentially one of the only books where a reader can say they have 27 different authors in their handbag.
Following the success of OxTales and OxTravels, this collection of crime writing is the latest Oxfam fundraiser from Profile Books, introduced by long-standing Oxfam supporter Ian Rankin, and featuring a compelling cast of suspects.
OxCrimes includes 22 unpublished stories and has been curated by Peter Florence, director of the Hay Festival, where the collection will be launched this month. At Dead Good we are privileged to be able to bring you a fabulous exclusive! We have Stuart Neville’s short story from the collection here for you to enjoy!
We’ve also been having fun creating some Dead Good First Lines from each of the stories over on Twitter and each is as colourful and unique as the author who wrote them. You can follow them using the #oxcrimes
