If Stuart David ever gives up the day job, pop music’s loss would be literature’s gain — The Times

A founding member of Belle & Sebastian, Stuart David joins us to talk about his new novel Peacock’s Alibi. Peacock Johnson is a man about town in Glasgow, and will be familiar to readers from his appearance in Ian Rankin’s A Question of Blood alongside Inspector Rebus. But, in this perfectly pitched comic romp, he has Detective Donald McFadgen on his case about a murder he didn’t commit, and a lack of friends who believe him. Peacock needs an alibi fast, and will go to any means to secure one.
