Three crime writers who started out life in Glasgow, but haven’t always chosen to set their work in the city come together to discuss the influence Glasgow has had on their books. Owen Mullen’s debut novel Games People Play was long-listed for the McIlvanney Prize and his latest And So It Began was a Sunday Times Crime Club Star Pick. Claire MacLeary’s Burnout is the sequel to her debut, Cross Purpose which was also long-listed for the McIlvanney Prize. Angus McAllister’s Close Quarters satirises the traditional and sentimental view of Glasgow’s tenement life and has been a huge success.
