Wales Week / Berkshire : Meet the Crime Cymru Authors : Chris Lloyd and Mark Ellis

Wales Week / Berkshire has had a connection with Crime Cymru since our first year when Matt Johnson and Alis Hawkins came for an evening in Binfield so we are are delighted to welcome two more Crime Cymru authors Chris Lloyd and Mark Ellis to Berkshire in our fifth year.

Chris Lloyd was born in an ambulance racing through a town he’s only returned to once, which probably explains a lot. The result of his lifelong interest in World War 2 and resistance and collaboration in Occupied France, The Unwanted Dead (Orion) is Chris’s first novel set in Paris, featuring Detective Eddie Giral. The series will see Eddie negotiate his way through the Occupation, trying to find a path between resistance and collaboration, all the time becoming whoever he must be to survive the ordeal descended on his home.

Mark Ellis is a thriller writer from Swansea and a former barrister and entrepreneur. He is the creator of DCI Frank Merlin, an Anglo-Spanish police detective operating in World War 2 London. His books treat the reader to a vivid portrait of London during the war skilfully blended with gripping plots, political intrigue and a charismatic protagonist. 

Head to Wokingham Library on Tuesday 5th March at 2pm to hear Chris and Mark talk about their books, life, Crime Cymru and Gŵyl Crime Cymru Festival.
