Event description


Interested in thrillers? Hop online and chat to Margaret Kirk!

Margaret Kirk is a Highland Scot with an abiding fondness for Glasgow and its university, where she took an MA in modern languages. Germanophile, Runrig Fan and mad cat lady, she writes crime fiction set in Inverness and the Highlands (think the North Coast 500 with bodies…) featuring ex-Met DI Lukas Mahler. Margaret’s debut crime novel, ‘Shadow Man’, won the Good Housekeeping First Novel Competition in 2016 and came out in paperback in June 2018. She is currently working on book 2 of the Lukas Mahler crime series, to be published by Orion in summer 2019. The scenery and history of the Highlands play an important part in her novels (though she’d really rather you didn’t mention Outlander).

Drawing on her own family history, Margaret is also fascinated by the themes of absence and homecoming. How does it feel to come home after an extended absence? Can it ever truly feel like ‘home’?
