More Murder and Mayhem!

They're back! This time at Blackwells in Edinburgh, on 17th March. Are you brave enough to join them? Not everyone will come out of it alive!*

See if you can spot which of the crime writers is the murderer, and win a freebie if you manage to catch them out. There's also plenty of time for chatting about the writing life, getting published and writing crime.

Each time we've done this, it's been a hoot, so if you're in the area, pop in and see for yourself. Entry is completely free. See here for more details.

The writers are: Tana Collins, Wendy H. Jones, Lesley Kelly, Chris Longmuir and Jackie McLean.
