In a collection of short stories described by James Crawford as ‘a tribute to two of our nation’s greatest assets – our crime writing and our built heritage’, twelve of Scotland’s top crime writers, among them Lin Anderson, Val McDermid , Gordon Brown and Ann Cleeves, weave plots of murder and mystery around structures including a 5,000-year-old burial cairn, Bothwell Castle and the Forth Bridge.
Set in a small town in Georgia, Karin Slaughter’s debut novel introduces the paediatrician and medical examiner Sara Linton and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver. Following Sara’s discovery of a murdered local woman with a cross cut into her torso, the hunt is on for a vicious serial killer.
