"The final event on the WORD Christchurch Festival calendar was last night's exciting end to the crime writing year - The Ngaio Marsh Awards for New Zealand Crime Writing. this years' awards were held in conjunction with Crime after Crime - a touring panel of four shining stars in the mystery genre: Val McDermid, Michael Robotham, J.P. Pomare; and Vanda Symon."
Fee looks forward to the final event of the WORD Christchurch festival and reviews the books in the running for Best Crime Novel this year.

Ahead of his appearance at WORD, Fee reads Ngaio Marsh Award nominee, JP Pomare's The Last Guest, a twisty mystery that keeps her guessing.
Fee reads Becky Chambers' award-nominated sci-fi novella and finds it "... refreshing and full of hope - just like a cup of tea."
