Two decades ago, Glasgow-based novelist Louise Welsh thrilled readers with her astounding debut, The Cutting Room, which not only won a series of accolades but swiftly became a Scottish crime fiction classic. Since then, she has written a host of further novels including the haunting Plague Times trilogy, as well as plays, poetry, and even an opera. Twenty years later, and hapless auctioneer turned murder detective Rilke is finally back for his long-awaited sequel, The Second Cut, bringing the dark streets of Glasgow to sizzling life once again. We’re delighted to welcome Louise to introduce this hot-off-the-press new adventure in conversation with fellow crime writer and Paisley buddy Karen Campbell.
