    For this event we are bringing together three crime writers from Scotland who have chosen not to head down the Tartan Noir route of setting their books here but instead have given their books a more international flavour. Mason Cross has enjoyed tremendous success in a short space of time and his latest Winterlong is the thirst instalment of his U.S. set Carter Blake series. Mark Leggatt’s Names of the Dead follows Connor Montrose from Paris to Morocco and finally to Tehran on a nail-biting, action packed ride. Douglas Lindsay, author of the recently filmed The Legend of Barney Thompson has chosen Estonia for his latest, Song of the Dead a new series introducing detective Ben Westphall.

    Tickets £9 from the festival website.

    12:00 pmWherever there is internet
    On Sunday 26th June #scotlitfest will be hosting the Collaborative Crime Creation on Twitter. We hope it’ll be like nothing Scottish crime fans have seen before.
    We’ve asked a number of Scotland’s best crime writers to spare 15 minutes of their time to contribute to a collaborative piece of crime writing which will be created live on Twitter. To give our writers something to work with ScotLitFest will ask the public to name the protagonist, decide where in Scotland the story will begin and what the crime will be. From there it’s all up to the writers…
    Louise Welsh will be kicking off the creation at 12pm on the Sunday and begin the story with the #SLFcrime hashtag. After 15 minutes she will stop and the next crime writer will pick up the story where she left off. After their 15 minutes of live writing on Twitter, the next writer will pick it up and so on until we have a full (and no doubt interesting!) piece of crime writing.
    If you can’t follow the whole thing on Twitter during the day do not worry! We will be gathering all the tweets together and making them into a free ebook so you can read the piece in its entirety.
    The first confirmed participants are…
    Louise Welsh | Mason Cross | Douglas Skelton | Lesley Kelly
    All #ScotLitFest events are free to ‘attend’, all you need is an internet connection and you can join us! Sign up on Eventbrite for the latest information straight to your email.

    Following the release of his debut novel, ‘The Killing Season’, Mason Cross arrived on the crime fiction scene with a bang. Not every debut novel is described by Lee Child as ‘my kind of book’, but Mason  achieved it.

    If that success wasn’t enough, the follow-up title, ‘The Samaritan’, continued the meteoric rise of main character Carter Blake, when it was included in the Richard and Judy Spring Books List this year. Fans of Mason Cross and his character Carter Blake didn’t have to wait long for more action packed pages with the release of the third part of the series, ‘The Time To Kill’, in May this year. Come along and hear this rising star of the Scottish crime fiction scene talk about his dark art.
