‘Denise Mina brilliantly manages to be funny, heart-wrenching, gut-punching and addictive all at once: a fabulous, captivating novel’ – Nicci French on Conviction

‘One of the most talented, most daring, most humane writers of the past twenty years, an artist whose thrillers double as bracing moral inquiries. You finish a Denise Mina novel feeling enriched and enhanced, as though you’d just discovered some new virtue within yourself, some new inspiration. Conviction is her finest work to date: a dark star of a novel, blazingly intense, up-to-the-minute fresh, and exciting as all hell. Yet again, I’m astounded.’ -A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

CONVICTION – DENISE MINA

Denise Mina has been described as ‘one of the most talented, most daring, most humane writers of the past 20 years’. Twice the winner of the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award, she is best known for her popular Detective Alex Morrow series and The Long Drop, a true crime story about Glaswegian serial killer Peter Manuel.

Join us for a dissection of her latest novel Conviction; a fast-paced and compulsive tale of a true crime podcast, a sunken yacht and a murder in the Mediterranean, which showcases her discerning eye for great fictional and true crime stories.

A twisting, darkly comic, thrill-a-minute ride across Europe. If you loved Killing Eve, you’ll devour Conviction’ – Erin Kelly
