Crime-writing extraordinaire and gruesome guru DM Mark is this week's guest!
DM is David. David is DM. After his 'McAvoy' crime series are bestsellers and critically acclaimed, David became bored of murders in the 21st century and took a dive back in time, travelling to the 1800s. Hull is ravaged by cholera, you can barely walk along the streets for the dying, and the grass over graves is hardly sealed when it gets broken again for another corpse. It is into this already bleak world, that David has thrown a serial killer. Because, crime novels, right?
'The Zealot's Bones' tells this gory, sorry tale, and in this episode you can hear why David chose the past, how he researched the 1800s thoroughly and why he thinks it's a time that probably suited him more than now.
Kurt Vonnegut gives us our 'Distinguished Diary, there's Harry Potter mentions finally, and you can hear what the car-park of a Liverpudlian Travellodge really sounds like.
