About Queen MacBeth: Val McDermid with Nicola Sturgeon

Listed Under Books Events

Shakespeare fed us the myths of the MacBeths as murderous conspirators. But now Val McDermid drags the truth out the shadows in a tale of passion, forced marriage, bloody massacre and the harsh realities of medieval Scotland.

At the heart of this new novel, is one strong, charismatic woman, who survived loss and jeopardy to outwit the endless plotting of a string of ruthless and power-hungry men. Her struggle won her a country. But now it could cost her life.

Val is on of Scotland’s most successful crime writing author who has sold over 19 million books to date across the globe and her books have been translated into more than 40 different languages.
