About Bloody Scotland: Spy Sisters: Sarah Armstrong, Asia Mackay, Charlotte Philby, Manda Scott

The shadowy world of espionage was once a largely male preserve, both in reality and in fiction. Wikipedia lists 126 notable writers of spy fiction, both past and present – of those, just two are women. But things are beginning to change.

We present four spy novelists whose ability to layer intrigue upon international incident isn’t bounded by gender. Sarah Armstrong mesmerises in The Wolves of Leninsky Prospekt, while Asia Mackay’s stylish debut Killing It does exactly that. Charlotte Philby, granddaughter of infamous double agent Kim Philby, is the author of the highly-acclaimed The Most Difficult Thing. Manda Scott’s latest novel, A Treachery of Spies is an espionage thriller to rival the very best, a high stakes game of cat-and-mouse, played in the shadows, which will keep you guessing every step of the way.

Chaired by Anna Day.
