The former crime correspondent for The Guardian, Duncan Campbell, will be giving a presentation called Crime and the News at the Javea Book Circle on April 5.

On April 5, the Javea Book Circle will be hosting Duncan Campbell, a British investigative journalist, author and television producer who was also formerly the crime correspondent for The Guardian.

In his Crime and the News presentation, he will be introducing the new editions of two of his books. We’ll All Be Murdered in our Beds: The Shocking History of Crime Reporting in Britain is a colourful history of crime reporting since 1700 which looks at new threats to reporting and how the coverage of crime and corruption in the media is being challenged as never before.

Underworld: The Definitive History of Britain’s Organised Crime examines how crime has moved from bank robberies and hijacking security vans to cybercrime, drugs and sex trafficking. The old family firms of criminals are becoming the new international consortiums, as shown by the recent cases in Spain and the UK, where criminals have been found to communicate internationally via modified phones using EncroChat networks.

The Javea Book Circle was founded in the late 1980s by an intrepid group of book lovers from different countries and backgrounds who had settled in the Marina Alta area and who wished to share their love of reading with fellow bibliophiles.
