OxCrimes

Introduced by Ian Rankin, OxCrimes is a collection of 27 compelling crime stories curated by Peter Florence, director of Hay Festival. The stellar cast of contributors also includes Mark Billingham, Alexander McCall Smith, Anthony Horowitz, Val McDermid, Peter James, Adrian McKinty, Denise Mina, Louise Welsh and a host of other compelling suspects.

Following the success of OxTales (2009) and OxTravels (2011), which have raised more than a quarter of a million pounds for Oxfam, this collection of crime writing is the latest Oxfam fundraiser from Profile Books. Every book sold will help to support Oxfam's vital work fighting poverty around the world. 

"These stories can be read in bite-sized chunks or at one satisfying sitting. They provide a rich diet by creators at the top of their game, and all for a very good cause." Ian Rankin

OxCrimes paperback is available now in all Oxfam bookshops priced at £8.99 with all profits going to Oxfam. Find your nearest bookshop. Exclusive signed editions of OxCrimes are available from Henry Sotheran's book sellers.
