Three Bloodhound authors selected to appear at Bloody Scotland!

"Being selected for ‘Crime in the Spotlight’ is like being asked to be the support band on a major stadium tour. A bit like what Travis were to Oasis."

That's some accolade, and we are delighted that three of our authors have been selected to take part alongside some of the industry's biggest names. Pat Young, whose recent new release Till The Dust Settles has received wide spread critical acclaim. Pat will appear alongside Louise Welsh, Doug Johnstone and E S Thomson on Sunday 10th October. 

Tana Collins, author of the the successful Inspector Jim Carruthers series, will appear alongside Lynda La Plante. And lastly, Owen Mullen, whose best-selling Games People Play has been long-listed for the prestigious McIlvanney Prize, will appear alongside Peter May.

We'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the authors involved and wish them the very best for the event. Full details can be viewed here.
