Granite Noir: Aberdeen’s crime writing festival | Friday 24 - Sunday 26 February 2017
Authenticity matters, so do ex-cops have the edge when it comes to crime writing? Come along and find out, as Stuart MacBride talks with Denzil Meyrick and Kate London.
Denzil Meyrick, author of the popular D.C.I Daley series, served with Strathclyde Police in Glasgow. His latest DCI Daley novel, The Rat Stone Serenade, is set in snowbound Kintyre, where ghosts and ancient curses rise out of the past, causing mayhem and murder.
Kate London was an actress, theatre writer, and teacher before joining London’s Metropolitan Police. After qualifying as a detective constable she went on attachment with France’s police nationale, and finished her career as part of a Major Investigation Team on the Met’s Homicide Command. The Sunday Times said her debut, Post Mortem, “vividly recreates the everyday experience of uniformed police [offering] rare insights into how the police operate.” The follow up, Death Message, comes out in April.
Stuart MacBride works closely with forensic professionals and local police forces when researching his popular Logan McRae novels.
