We get a bit distracted this week with discussions on embracing the grey and best hair products! But there's also plenty of chat about representation of the working class in crime fiction, Edgar Allan Poe who went to school in Ayrshire and the appeal of true crime, amongst many other topics. Denise picks New York Times best-selling writer Brian McGilloway’s first standalone novel, The Last Crossing, as her book recommendation. The New York Times best selling author is famous for his DS Lucy Black Thrillers and Inspector Devlin mysteries.
And there’s a great extract from last year’s Bloody Scotland International Crime Writing Festival session, Women in Gangland, with Dr Jacky Collins, Mandasue Heller, Marnie Riches and Anna Smith.
