The Penguin Podcast: James Oswald

‘You should be very careful about crossing a writer, particularly a crime writer because they will put you in a book and kill you’

James Oswald and Konnie Huq
Author James Oswald and presenter Konnie Huq

James Oswald joins Konnie Huq in the Penguin studio to talk about the latest book in his Detective Inspector Tony McLean mystery series, The Damage Done.

James brings along a number of objects that helped shaped the series, including his walking boots, his notebook and a picture of his tractor as he explains how he combines writing with running a farm, and why you shouldn’t get on the wrong side of a crime writer.
