We’re addicts of gritty crime fiction and there’s no better way to indulge in all things noir than around the fire on an autumn evening. So naturally, we’ve organised to bring together three of our favourite literary serial killers for just such an night!

Our trio of best-selling, award winning, and genre (re)defining crime-fiction authors are Peter Robinson, Neil Broadfoot and Craig Russell.

Peter Robinson’s DCI Banks has an avid following on ITV1 but it is on the page that he is at his most thrilling! When the Music’s Over is the latest installment in the sensational Yorkshire detective series and Robinson’s on top form dealing with some shocking, current issues.

Alongside this titan of crime fiction, we bring you Craig Russell, already a classic figure in the crime-fiction canon. An international bestseller with his Hamburg-set Jan Fabel thriller series and his 1950s Glasgow based Lennox books, Craig will be introducing his latest Lennox adventure: The Quiet Death of Thomas Quaid.

Our final panelist is Neil Broadfoot, one of Scotland’s brightest and freshest crime-fiction talents. He joins us to celebrate the triumphant return of Doug McGregor, the gritty Edinburgh journalist we’ve been rooting for since Falling Fast came out to critical acclaim in 2014. We’ll have copies of his latest All The Devils hot off the press so you can snap up your copy before anyone else!

A gripping page turner with prose like a sniper’s bullet – straight, true and hitting the mark. Falling Fast was an astonishing debut. The Storm shows it was no fluke. -Douglas Skelton
