Highlights include Val McDermid in conversation with Lee Child, and Ian Rankin in conversation with Lawrence Block. Other authors appearing include Attica Locke, Abir Mukherjee, Jo Nesbo and Denise Mina. Other invents include a spin on Desert Island Discs called Desert Island Crooks, and a digital challenge called The Never-Ending Panel which will feature 27 Scottish writers from all over the world.
