It's that time of year again. The Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Festival begins this week in Harrogate, bringing together the great and good from the UK and international crime writing scene. It's like Glyndebourne for the morbid, or Henley for those whose rivers run with blood. One of the highlights of the four day event is the announcement of the Theakstons award for Crime Novel of the Year. In this special edition of The Hobcast Book Show, we speak to one of the six authors nominated for this hugely sought after prize, Vaseem Khan. Vaseem has established himself as one of the most popular and talented crime authors of his generation, with first his Baby Ganeshseries set in present day India, and now the Malabar House series of novels set in 1950s India. In this fascinating interview, we learn about Vaseem's long road to publication, his views on improving and widening diversity within publishing, and his passion for cricket.
