Every month on Past Offences I gather together blog posts about crime fiction written or filmed in a particular year. This August the chosen year is 1980 – illustrated by this rather resplendent period piece, courtesy of Chevrolet. I’m loving the stormy background and moody lighting. Cue synths and sax solo.
If you want to take part, you can! When you’ve written your post, just let me know below. I’ll gather them all together at the end of the month.
An additional challenge – if anyone can identify the criminally-inclined character who uttered the following words in 1980, they can choose next month’s year.
‘Let’s go inside and load our lovely new guns and then it’ll be bang bang bang…’
Anyone can play, so over to you…
- Don’t be shy!
- Just comment below to link to your blog post.
- If you want to play but you haven’t got a blog, I’m happy to have you as a guest poster, or to link to Goodreads or Amazon.
- Books, comics, films, plays and TV also welcome.
- Sorry in advance if I miss you in the round-up, although I am getting better at that bit.
