Results of Crime Writing Competition - 1 September 2014

We met on Tuesday 1 September to hear the results of our recent Crime Writing Competition. Our task was to write a 2,000 word crime story, and the judge this time was thriller-writer Phil Viner.
      He had a very large number of entries to read, and we were impressed by the time and effort he had put into the task. He also gave us a number of useful pointers about writing in this particular genre.
      The lucky winners were: in fourth place, Diana Lock with 'The Energy of the Crescent Moon', third, Musetta Ripamonti with 'Yokohama Duet'. In second place was Jill Fricker with 'What the Heron Knows', and in first place, Eileen Masters, with 'The Police Chief's New Clothes'.
