World Book Night is approaching fast. Celebrate the night with CultureNL Libraries and come along to our special author visit from Scottish crime fiction author Alan Parks.

Alan Parks hit the bookshelves last year with his acclaimed debut crime novel, Bloody January. When Detective Harry McCoy arrives at the scene of a double shooting in the middle of a busy Glasgow street, he is sure of one thing. This was not a random act of violence. McCoy must enlist the help of his criminal underworld connections to find out the truth.

The second dark and grimy Harry McCoy thriller February’s Son has just been published. Bodies are piling up with grisly messages carved into their chests. Rival gangs are competing for control of Glasgow’s underworld and it seems that Cooper, McCoy’s oldest friend, is caught up in it all. Bruised and battered from the events of Bloody January, McCoy returns for a breathless ride through the ruthless world of 1970s Glasgow.
