Douglas Skelton in conversation with Denzil Meyrick at Waterstones Argyle Street
(THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT FUTURE EVENTS.
Douglas Skelton, local favourite, joins us to discuss The Blood Is Still, the second Rebecca Connolly mystery and follow up to critically acclaimed Thunder Bay! Rebecca’s second mystery sees an assignment taking in murder, politics, history, conspiracy, terrorism, and more, with dead bodies dropping and threats abounding…
Douglas will be joined in conversation by Denzil Meyrick to talk about writing politics into his crime fiction, history and the present, how his work investigating and writing about true crime plays into what he invents, and more in a brilliant evening not to be missed!
When the body of a man in eighteenth-century Highland dress is discovered on the site of the Battle of Culloden, journalist Rebecca Connolly takes up the story for the Chronicle.
Meanwhile, a film being made about the ’45 Rebellion has enraged the right-wing group Spirit of the Gael which is connected to a shadowy group called Black Dawn linked to death threats and fake anthrax deliveries to Downing Streetand Holyrood. When a second body – this time in the Redcoat uniform of the government army – is found in Inverness, Rebecca finds herself drawn ever deeper into the mystery. Are the murders connected to politics, a local gang war or something else entirely?
