Criminal Minds - 10 crime writers in 100 thrilling minutes. Covering a criminally large range of small town crime to international espionage and finishing with a sliver of paranormal tension, these ten authors represent some of New Zealand’s best crime writers, together under one roof. Join them as they stalk serial killers through the Coromandel bush, follow undercover cops on their fictional beats. Walk alongside them as they track international terrorists through Malaysia and investigate deadly financiers and dark family secrets. Listen to ten exceptional Kiwi authors at this one off event halfway down Auckland’s iconic Dominion Road.
