BEST-selling Scottish crime writer, Alex Gray, will be at The Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns to discuss The Bird That Did Not Sing, her stunning new Lorimer novel, in a free event organised by Waterstone’s at Primavera on Friday 14th March from 7pm till 8.30pm.
The Bird That Did Not Sing, set against the backdrop of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, brings the vibrant city to life in a race to stop the greatest threat the city has ever known.
The Commonwealth Games are coming to Glasgow and security is extra tight, particularly after a mysterious bomb explodes in nearby rural Stirlingshire. As the opening ceremony for the Games draws ever closer, the police desperately seek the culprits. But Detective Superintendent Lorimer has other concerns on his mind.
One is a beautiful red-haired woman from his past whose husband dies suddenly on his watch. Then there is the body of a young woman found dumped in countryside just south of the city who is proving impossible to identify.
Elsewhere in Glasgow, people prepare for the events in their own way, whether for financial gain or to welcome home visitors from overseas.
And, hiding behind false identities, are those who pose a terrible threat not just to the Games but to the very fabric of society.
Alex Gray was born and educated in Glasgow. She has been awarded the Scottish Association of Writers’ Constable and Pitlochry trophies for her crime writing and is the co-founder of the Bloody Scotland international crime writing festival.
