An Audience With Val McDermid

Join us for a captivating evening with the Queen of Crime, Val McDermid, as she delves into the dark and gripping world of her latest novel, “Past Lying”. Set against the haunting backdrop of Edinburgh, a city renowned for its literary ghosts, “Past Lying” presents a chilling tale where a mysterious manuscript eerily mirrors an unresolved crime. DC Karen Pirie, tasked with the cold cases of Edinburgh, finds herself entwined in a labyrinth of betrayal and revenge, where every corner turned unveils another deceit. With the author of the key manuscript dead and unfinished, can Karen discern truth from fiction and uncover what truly happened to Lara Hardie?

Every ticket purchase includes a special treat — a signed copy of “Past Lying” (RRP £22.00). This is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the intrigue of the novel and engage in a Q&A session, where you can pose your burning questions directly to Val McDermid.
