This week, Mel Cranenburgh talks all things crime writing with Christian White whose debut thriller, The Nowhere Child, is a "combustible tale of trauma, cult, conspiracy and memory".

Mel is then joined by Jacqui Horwood, the chief judge wrangler of the Sisters in Crime Davitt Awards, which will be presented on Saturday 11 August at Swinburne University.Since 2001, the Davitts have played a pivotal role in getting women's crime writing published and better recognised and Mel and Jacqui discuss the amazing work being done by female writers in the crime genre.
