Val McDermid with Nicola Sturgeon (2015 Event)

The Diamond Dagger-winning Fifer has built a vast fan-base over the years thanks to her number one bestselling novels that have sold over 11 million copies. One of Val McDermid’s better known readers is Scotland’s First Minister and here watch Nicola Sturgeon meet McDermid to discuss Splinter the Silence and Stranded, a book of scintillating, nail-biting short stories that range from passion and revenge in St Petersburg to the sleazy flipside of the international publishing scene.
