Alan Gillespie, Alison Irvine & Sharon Bairden chaired by Bob McDevitt

She only left her daughter in the car for a minute. Just a quick minute whilst she ran into the shop. She barely thought twice about making that decision, but it soon began to consume the thoughts of every neighbour, police and social security worker in a fifteen mile radius . With sharp prose Alison Irvine’s Cat Step compels you to read on.

Lucas Findlay thinks he has struck gold when he marries Rebecca, but she married him for one reason only – to destroy him. When her past comes back to haunt her, Rebecca begins to disconnect from herself and the world around her. As secrets are unearthed, she begins to fear for her sanity. Sharon Bairden’s Sins of the Father is a chilling page-turner from a sharp new Scottish voice. Cullrothes, in the Scottish Highlands, where Innes hides a terrible secret from his girlfriend Alice, Donald is the aggressive distillery owner whose son has gone missing, schoolgirl Jessie is trying to get the grades to escape to the mainland, while Grandpa counts the days left in his life.

Alan GiIlespie’s The Mash House follows these parallel lives, each fractured by the fears and uncertainty in their own minds.
