Val McDermid

Author Event


We are delighted to announce that the Queen of Crime herself, Val McDermid, will be with us on Fri 12th Oct to talk about her new novel, Broken Ground.

Alice Somerville’s inheritance lies six feet under in a Highland peat bog – a pair of valuable vintage motorbikes buried by her grandfather at the end of World War II. But when Alice finally organises their recovery, she finds an unwelcome surprise – a body with a pair of bullet holes . . . and Nike trainers. DCI Karen Pirie of Police Scotland’s Historic Cases Unit is called in to unravel a case where nothing is quite as it seems.
