About Bloody Scotland: The Axe-swinging 60s and the Psycho 70s
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
For those of you in denial that the 1960s and 70s can possibly be the setting for historical crime fiction, then join the club. Sadly however, the cruel sands of time bury even the grooviest of dead bodies. The saving grace of this monstrous process is three gripping noir novels that grab these decades by the throat and squeeze the life out of them. Andrew Martin’s The Winker is set in the sweltering summer of 76 while Alan Parks’ February’s Son shivers on the cold and mean streets of Glasgow in 1973, and Andrew William’s Witchfinder sees a search for spies in the swinging London of 1963.
Chaired by Karen Robinson, editor of The Times and Sunday Times Crime Club.
