‘McDermid’s expertly juggled plotlines and masterful handling of pace and tension tick all the best boxes.’ – The Guardian
Ever a highlight of our autumn festival, the incomparable Val McDermid returns to St Andrews with her own blend of wit, warmth, and wonderfully suspenseful crime fiction. Joining us for the latest instalment of the Karen Pirie series, Broken Ground, Val is sure to delight. Her enthralling tales of the grim research, remarkable encounters, and hilarious happenings that come with being Scotland’s Queen of Crime are not to be missed, and mark her as a true raconteur. We are excited to welcome her to the bookshop for another autumn evening of the best in tartan noir.
