Murder in Harrogate

Stories inspired by the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival
An anthology of stories edited by

For one weekend every July, thousands of readers descend on the historic English town of Harrogate, Yorkshire in pursuit of mysteries, mischief and murder. In Murder in Harrogate, ten of the world's best known crime and thriller writers come together in honour of the world's largest festival of crime writing, the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival.

From a missing person case inspired by Agatha Christie's infamous disappearance at the Old Swan Hotel to a murdered Macbeth to a vicious parkrun assault, these razor sharp stories are a testament to the festival's rich history, stretching over two decades.

Curated and edited by former festival chair and award-winning author Vaseem Khan, contributors include Ann Cleeves, Mark Billingham, M.W. Craven, Elly Griffiths, Abir Mukherjee, Clare Mackintosh, Steve Cavanagh, Janice Hallett, Vaseem Khan, and Ruth Ware.
