Granite Noir is Aberdeen’s first book festival dedicated to crime fiction. ‘Over three days we’ll explore the enduring appeal of stories that plunge us into the heart of darkness – where morality is ambiguous, motives complicated, and even heroes harbour devastating secrets.’
CWA members presenting panels include Sarah Ward, Doug Johnstone, Gordon J Brown, Quentin Bates, Chris Brookmyre and Elly Griffiths and the enticing titles range from Atmosheric Pressure, Does Evil Exist, Poisoned High Tea, Crimestoppers Turned Crimewriters – not to mention Noir at the Bar.
Other authors participating include Stuart MacBride and Denise Mina.
Nordic Noir plays a main role on the saturday and there are writing workshops as well as panels. Well worth a weekend’s visit!
