Fabulous, funny Chris Brookmyre is back to talk about Want You Gone and Places in the Darkness! In the former, Jack Parlabane and a hacker known as Buzzkill must pull off an impossible heist, or lose everything they love most. Places in the Darkness, set on the first colony ship in outer space, introduces irreverent, irresistible sleuth Nikki Fixx, who never met a rule she wouldn’t break. Chris’s novel Black Widow, won 2016’s McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime Book of the Year, and 2017’s Theakston Crime Novel of the Year. He sold out at 2017’s Granite Noir — don’t miss your chance to see him in 2018. Chaired by Craig Sisterson.
