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 recently became Scotland’s First Minister and in this event, recorded live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Nicola Sturgeon meets 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.
