Focus on Scottish Crime Fiction
Some great new books this month including these new crime fiction titles set in Scotland.
Doug Johnstone – Meet the Skelfs: well-known Edinburgh family, proprietors of a long-established funeral-home business, and private investigators. When patriarch Jim dies, it’s left to his wife Dorothy, daughter Jenny and granddaughter Hannah to take charge of both businesses, kicking off an unexpected series of events. A page-turning and darkly funny new series. A Dark Matter, The Big Chill and The Great Silence are all in our new stock for this month.
T F Muir’s A Tooth for a Tooth, the third volume in the DCI Andy Gilchrist crime series set in St Andrews – we also have the first two in the library.
Denise Mina’s Rizzio – a departure from her contemporary crime novels where she delivers a radical new take on one of the darkest episodes in Scottish history—the bloody assassination of David Rizzio private secretary to Mary, Queen of Scots, in the queen’s chambers in Holyrood Palace.
