Syd Moore, Writer-in-Residence for Essex Book Festival 2018, has just been shortlisted for the Holmes and Watson Award in the Dead Good Reader Awards!

The Holmes and Watson Award is for the Best Detective Duo: Conan Doyle’s archetypal pair paved the way for a slew of sleuthing twosomes. This award is for the detective duo who make the ultimate partners in crime – the yin and yang of the investigative world.

If you read Syd’s books – Strange Sight & Strange Magic – for this year’s Essex Reads and think her detective duo Rosie Strange and Sam Stone deserve to win, then nominate them for the award at
