Peter James – King of Crime

Released on October 31, 2011

He’s a crime boss – but perhaps not as you expect.  British writer Peter James was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Letters in recognition of his ongoing contribution to the arts, which tells you something of his significance to writing and publishing generally.  The Daily Mail called him a cross between Stephen King and Michael Crichton, and with sales of his 25 titles running into the multi-millions, he’s a serious force in commercial publishing.

Crime is one of the biggest of all publishing genres; it accounts for about a quarter of all books sold.  In tonight’s extended show, we get under the surface of both the writer himself and the whole genre – what does it take to succeed in this area?  Peter, who is also chair of the Crime Writers Association, is clearly the best man to ask.

Peter’s latest book Perfect People has just been published in the UK, and his most recent paperback, Dead Man’s Grip, has just gone to the No. 1 position in the paperback charts (knocking off Jamie Oliver!).

With Dave Bartram and Peter Cox.
