Monthly Crime Book Box – June 2020

Our crime book of the month for June is The Dead Line by Holly Watts!

I am thrilled to be giving you a first edition of The Dead Line by Holly Watt. Holly is an experienced journalist and uses her insider knowledge to great effect in this, her second novel.


Our copies come with a signed bookplate as the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions meant getting signed books just was not possible this month.

The Dead Line by Holly Watt

Alerted to possible horrific trade in babies she goes on the trail of missing girls, and into danger.

Whenever I think of journalism I love to imagine the time when articles were tapped out on old fashioned typewriters...

This inspired the bespoke wooden pin in the box.

They are made in the UK from responsibly sourced European Birch Plywood and the backing card is made from recycled materials. Eco Fact - these wooden pin badges use 20 to 24 times less energy to produce than enamel pin badges!

I’ve got mine pinned to my work apron, where will your wear yours?


Despite all the technology available, the modern journalist is never without a pencil especially when travelling the world to places such as Bangladesh and Afghanistan. I was delighted to work with Brittany at Posh Brats Bath & Body Boutique to bring subscribers a fun pencil bath bomb.

The gorgeous mini art print features many of our favourite crime novels both contemporary and classic. It was created just for us by a retired lithograph screen printer and professionally printed on high quality recycled card.
