Description

As part of Milngavie Week 2019, local writer Allan Martin will read from and talk about his recently published crime novel The Peat Dead.

The story is a gripping page-turner, but also a reflection on the nature of history and of the political order. It’s set in authentic locations on the island of Islay and in Glasgow.

Islay. A peat-cutter’s spade finds a human hand. A pointer to a crime. Inspector Angus Blue is sent from Oban to investigate. With the help of forensic archaeologist Alison Hendrickx, five corpses are revealed under the peat, unnamed victims of a ruthless killer.

The Peat Dead. History doesn’t go away.

There will also be a chance to buy your own signed copy of Allan's novel.
