The Queen of Crime writing discusses her latest Allie Burns thriller 1989, set a decade after the bestselling first novel in the ground-breaking, iconic new series.


1989 – The world is on the brink of revolution and journalist Allie Burns is a woman on a mission. When she discovers a lead about the exploitation of society’s most vulnerable, Allie is determined to investigate and give voice to the silenced.

Elsewhere, a ticking clock begins the countdown to a murder. As Allie begins to connect the dots and edges closer to exposing the truth, it is more shocking than she ever imagined. There’s nothing like a killer story, and to tell it, Allie must risk her freedom and her life.


Chaired by Louise Welsh.
