Bloody Scotland author Craig Robertson is launching his latest novel Witness the Dead in Glasgow on Tuesday July 2.

The event takes place in Waterstones in Argyle Street and kicks off at 7.00pm. Craig will be reading from the new book plus chatting to the audience and signing copies.

Witness the Dead, Craig’s fourth novel, is set in Glasgow and again features police photographer Tony Winter and DS Rachel Narey. It opens in the Necropolis, the city’s sprawling Victorian cemetery, where the body of a young woman is found laid out on a tomb. When a second body is found, it mirrors a series of killings in Glasgow in the early 1970s. Events then bring Winter into the life – and mind – of Scotland’s most infamous killer.

Researching policing methods from the 70s led Craig to interview former head of CID Bryan McLaughlin who was a beat bobby at the time. Bryan’s insight proved invaluable and he will be joining Craig at the launch to talk about patrolling the streets in the days before CCTV, DNA and computer databases.

Tickets are free and available in store.

On Thursday July 4, Craig will be in Waterstones East Kilbride along with fellow crime writer Michael J Malone, author of Blood Tears and A Taste for Malice. From 6.30 – 7.30pm, they will be talking about all things murderous.
