Crime and Wine with David Thorne and Clare Mackintosh
David Thorne started his working life in advertising and then moved to writing comedy sketches, gags and scripts for the BBC and Channel Four. In 2010 he moved to Essex and was immediately inspired to write East of Innocence. ‘Whatever you read about Essex, the reality is bigger, louder and more in-your-face. With Range Rovers!’ Daniel Connell the protagonist in David’s hugely acclaimed trilogy could never have existed anywhere else!
