Writing the Wrongs of the Past with Ajay Close and Donna Moore

Saturday 27 April, 2024

Introducing new crime thrillers from two of Scotland’s most exciting novelists, both of which explore how the criminal justice system has served – and failed to serve – women.Ajay Close’s latest book, What Doesn’t Kill Us, reimagines the era of the Yorkshire Ripper – the man of a thousand faces – in an action packed and darkly funny tale in which a police officer is torn between her duty and her loyalty to the women of Leeds. Donna Moore brings us her third novel, The Unpicking, which is set in 19th Century Glasgow, and spans three generations of women who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
In this event, Ajay and Donna chat to fellow author and ex-police officer Karen Campbell about the events that inspired their books, and whether in light of social campaigns such as the #MeToo movement, we might begin to imagine a better future for women in their dealings with the law.
