according to American author Tess Gerritsen speaking at the Bloomin Book Festival at Southport Flower show on Sunday these are the components that her readers want! Apparently most US readers of detection fiction are women and they want to identify with the victim-she had no explanation for twisted sex or the fascination with serial killing.
Ms Gerritsen is on a UK Tour including a visit to the Edinburgh Festival. The Sunday Independent featured her last week and published her schedule but managed to exclude details of her trip to Southport. Not withstanding the Indy's indifference to the event it was well attended and certainly the women sat next to me thought it was the highlight of the Show. Mind you even Ms Gerritsen's own website doesn't mention the Southport Flower Show
