Crime is serious business in Dublin and we love to read about it. From novels about detectives to accounts of serial killers, from gangster biographies to analysis of social issues, we have an appetite for all of it. During October the Central Library hosted 'Crime in the City: Crime and History', a series of talks and readings looking at the broad issue of crime in Dublin through the ages. This series of events brought together writers of fiction, historians, researchers and bloggers to inform, entertain and promote discussion.
So if you are a lover of crime fiction, historical fiction or just interested in the history of Dublin, you are sure to enjoy listening back to these fascinating talks and readings.
