In November we’re usually gearing up to welcome readers and writers into the Baths as part of Book Week Scotland. Sadly we can’t do that this year but here’s a few events that might be of interest, including launches and a discussion event from our regular Book Week Scotland collaborators Ringwood Publishing.
Discussion: The Future of the Scottish Police Service
Monday 16 November, 7pm to 8:30pm
Join the authors of three new books about crime and policing to discuss the future of the police service in Scotland.
- Ruxton the first Modern Murder by Tom Wood, a former Deputy Chief Constable in Lothian, focuses on the role of Scotland’s use of the expertise of universities’ forensic science departments in altering the way crimes are solved.
- Cuddies Strip by Rob McInroy is a fictional exploration of a famous Perth murder and its contemporary resonances, including police bias and bigotry, and discrimination against women in the criminal justice system.
- The Ten Per Cent by Simon McLean is a frank and thought-provoking look at the police service in a changing Scotland from his time as a constable in Highlands and Islands of Argyll, as a detective sergeant in Rothesay, and in the Serious Crime Squad, keeping Scotland safe by bringing down the most serious criminals.
There will be talks from all three authors and the opportunity for the audience to ask questions and engage in the discussion.
