Granite Noir 2024: Literature at Lunchtime with Michael J Malone

Chaired by Karen Sullivan

A young woman starts experiencing terrifying premonitions of people dying, as it becomes clear that a family curse known only as The Murmurs has begun, and a long-forgotten crime, harking back to Scotland’s clearances and something closer to home, is about to be unearthed. Join Michael J Malone as he chats about his new gothic thriller.
