Bloody Scotland: Local Crimes for Local People
Neil Broadfoot, Margaret Kirk, Hania Allen and Charles E McGarry
Meet four authors who have chosen to set their tales of dark and grisly deeds away from the traditional crime fiction killing fields of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Bloody Scotland’s own home city of Stirling is the location for Neil Broadfoot’s No Man’s Land which opens with a mutilated body dumped at Cowane’s Hospital. In Margaret Kirk’s Shadow Man, two seemingly unrelated murders disturb the highland calm on either side of Inverness. Hania Allen’s The Polish Detective takes place on the mean streets of Dundee while Charles E McGarry uses the south of Scotland as the setting for The Shadow of the Black Earl.
