Creative Conversations: Denise Mina


 Denise Mina in conversation with Louise Welsh

Award-winning author Denise Mina offers a radical new take on a crime so brutal no one wanted to talk about it for 200 hundred years — the murder of David Rizzio, Mary Queen of Scots’ friend and secretary. Tense, terrifying, this is a tale of sex, seduction, secrets and lies. It looks at history through a modern lens and explores the lengths that people go to for love and power. It takes place on Saturday evening, 9 March 1566. Mary, Queen of Scots, six months pregnant, is hosting a supper party. She doesn’t know her Palace is surrounded, or that an army of men is creeping upstairs to murder the handsome Italian man who is smiling across the table at her.
