Mark Lawson reports from the Harrogate Crime Writing Festival. His guests include Jeffery Deaver, who has just been commissioned to write a new James Bond book and Jeff Lindsay, the creator of the serial killer Dexter.

Mark also discusses stalkers, title changes and creating an internationally successful series with American Karin Slaughter, Australian Michael Robotham, Scot and Festival Chair Stuart MacBride and Londoner Christopher Fowler.

And he tracks down clues for new authors hoping for a life of successful crime fiction, listening in to the creative writing day at the start of the Festival.

Producer Robyn Read (repeat).
