We are a small, friendly club meeting monthly for lively discussion of European crime books chosen by members and to keep abreast of new developments and events in the genre. You are very welcome to join us if it kindles your interest, although at present we have a full complement of members.
Meetings take place on the third Tuesday of the month from 3.30pm – 5.00pm.
Annual subscription £10. To join the group you must first be a member of the 3Ls Association.
