A CRIME writing festival in Stirling is set to reveal this year's programme with a special launch event.

Bloody Scotland 2023 will see the programme announced on June 22 at a Golden Lion Hotel event from 1pm to 2pm.

The event will also focus on Voices of the Dead, the fourth historical crime novel from the husband and wife writing team of Chris Brookmyre and Dr Marisa Haetzman, who write together under the pen name Ambrose Parry.

The book is set in a time of unprecedented scientific discovery where the public’s appetite for wonder has seen a resurgence of interest in mesmerism, spiritualism and other unexplained phenomena.

Tickets to the event are £5 – click here to book.
