Stuart MacBride at Bloody Scotland 2014Stuart MacBride has been writing bestselling novels for over ten years and has remained at the top of his game, achieving the number one Sunday Times bestseller position on publication for the last four years in a row. He’s also found time to make it along to Bloody Scotland over the last few years and always found himself as a firm favourite with our audiences.

This January will see the release of Stuart’s ninth Logan McRae novel – an ambitious attempt to convey realistically what divisional Scottish policing is like on the ground; whilst creating a page-turning plot centred around the murder of a young girl. The Missing and the Dead is published on the 15th January 2015.
