Congratulations to Craig Russell who won the McIlvanney Prize for Best Crime Novel of the Year 2021!

The judges said:

‘a fantastic book with a gothic background that draws you in and brings the reader back to the Scottish origins of Jekyll and Hyde’s creator, Robert Louis Stevenson. A dark tale that was a delight and a thoroughly entertaining read. It shows that Scottish crime writing is amongst the best in the world.’
