We go inside the twisted minds of two of Scotland’s leading authors in the company of psychologist Dr Kathy Charles. She will lay both writers and their books metaphorically on her metaphorical couch and see what secrets she can uncover.

Craig Robertson’s The Photographer is the latest in his Winter & Narey series, seeing DI Rachel Narey become the target of cyber trolls as she hunts a serial rapist. In Lin Anderson’s Sin’s of the Dead, Rhona Macleod is also being targeted in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Why do they put their characters through so much?

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Bloody Scotland: Crime Writers on the psychologist’s couch: Dr Kathy Charles, Craig Robertson and Lin Anderson are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
