Val McDermid – Queen of Crime

£7.00£10.00

Friday 3 September, 7.30pm
Revell Ward Suite, John Smith’s Stadium

One of the biggest names in crime fiction, Val McDermid writes electrifyingly suspenseful novels filled with warmth, wit and vividly memorable characters. Her latest novel is the first in a brand new series of novels introducing Allie Burns, set at pivotal moments of the past four decades…

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. Soon Allie and fellow journalist Danny Sullivan are exposing the criminal underbelly of respectable Scotland. They risk making powerful enemies – and Allie won’t stop there. After all, she is a woman in a man’s world and nobody can be trusted. 

This is the Queen of Crime at her heart-pounding, gripping best…

Val will be interviewed by Yvette Huddleston.
