Lyn Hamilton and Rick Blechta will be reading in the final in a six part series featuring Canada's top crime writers presented in association with Crime Writers of Canada. Canada's crime writers are celebrated around the world.

Lyn Hamilton is the author of a successful series of archaeological mysteries published by Berkley Prime Crime in New York. The series features Toronto antique dealer Lara McClintoch, who travels the world in search of the rare and beautiful for her shop, finding more than a little murder and mayhem along the way. Each book in the series is set in a different and exotic location and calls upon the past in an unusual way.

The first book in the series, The Xibalba Murders, was nominated for an Arthur Ellis Award for best first crime novel in Canada, and the eighth, The Magyar Venus was nominated for an Ellis award for best crime novel. The Celtic Riddle formed the basis for the 2003 Murder She Wrote TV Movie starring Angela Lansbury.

Rick Blechta is a crime novelist and musician living in Toronto and has twin passions in life: crime writing and music. He's had five novels published and the sixth, A Case of You, has just been released and Rick will be reading from it for the first time. His 2005 novel, Cemetery of the Nameless was a finalist for an Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Novel. He was also a recipient of the CWC's Derrick Murdoch Award in 2000.
