Kat contributed to two episodes of Mark Lawson’s Radio 4 ‘Foreign Bodies’ series on European crime fiction. You can read her recent interview in New Books in German here and see further research here.
Mrs. Peabody’s Investigates explores international crime fiction. It features reviews, general musings on crime fiction, TV and film, and is as likely to discuss a Japanese novel from 1962 as a Swedish or German one from the present day.

The books I review are ones I have bought, borrowed from the library, or have been sent by publishers. I receive no payment for reviews.
I am happy to receive requests to review books via email, but if you don’t hear back from me, it means I can’t take up the offer to review right now. Apologies.
I review mainly international crime fiction.
I like ‘intelligent’ crime fiction.
I tend not to review novels featuring serial killers or excessive violence.
