In Bloody Scotland twelve of Scotland’s best crime-writers use the sinister side of the country’s building heritage in stories that are, by turns, gripping, chilling and redemptive - exploring the potential of Scotland’s iconic sites.

Join writer and broadcaster James Crawford as he talks to two of the twelve: Denise Mina - critically acclaimed crime-writer who won the CWA Short Story Dagger for her story in this collection, along with the 2017 McIlvanney Prize and the Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Novel of the Year Award (twice!); and Lin Anderson, best known as the creator of the forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod series of crime thriller novels, and for her part in founding the annual Bloody Scotland crime-writing festival itself.

From murder in an Iron Age broch, to a dark psychological thriller set at Edinburgh Castle, this collection uncovers the intimate - and deadly - connections between people and places, and James will guide you through a dangerous journey into the dark shadows of our nation’s buildings - where passion, fury, desire and death collide!
