Book Festival 2022

Denise Mina

Denise Mina Tickets

Saturday 26th November at 3.30pm

One of Scotland’s “tartan noir” literary stars whose many books  include crimewriting, thrillers, the back story to Bible John and the life of David Rizzio, private secretary to Mary Queen of Scotland.

She’s adapted Steig Larrson’s celebrated trilogy as graphic novels and won many awards for her writing.

A qualified lawyer, her own first trilogy was Garnethill from which early triumph she’s just never looked back. She also sports one of the most memorable haircuts on the festival circuit.

Her latest thriller, CONFIDENCE is set in Scotland and was published in July.

Denise will be chaired by fellow crime writer Doug Skelton.
