The festival is the brainchild of author and screenwriter Adam Hamdy and Managing Director of Goldsboro Books, David Headley. Goldsboro Books will be the official bookseller for Capital Crime, selling paperbacks and a collection of rare and hard to find first edition hardbacks.

Martina Cole told SFcrowsnest, ‘We have all been waiting for a London based festival like Capital Crime. It’s fantastic to see such a diverse line up of crime and thriller writers taking part. David Headley and Adam Hamdy have put together an amazing programme of events for the first crime festival in London and I’m thrilled to be part of it.’
