1979

This summer marks the beginning of a brand new series from the Queen of Crime, Val McDermid. We are delighted that Val will be joining us for a live in-person event in September to celebrate the unmissable first story in her new, pulse-pounding series.

1979. It is the winter of discontent and ambitious young journalist Allie Burns is on the hunt for the story that will change her career. The only woman working the Glasgow newsdesk, she needs a ground-breaking scoop for the boy’s club to take her seriously.

After all, she is a woman in a man’s world and nobody can be trusted.
