An Evening With Chris Brookmyre

BEST-selling crime writer Chris Brookmyre returns to The Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns to discuss The Cracked Mirror, his latest book, in an event organised by Waterstone’s at Primavera on Thursday the 8th of August 2024 from 7.00pm till 8.00pm. Please call the shop on 0141 616 3933 to reserve a seat at this event.

A sweet old lady sleuth and a hardboiled LAPD homicide detective join forces in this crisp rollercoaster of a story that promises to redefine your idea of what a crime novel can do.
You know Penny Coyne. The little old lady who has solved multiple murders in her otherwise sleepy village, despite bumbling local police. A razor-sharp mind in a Sunday best hat.

You know Johnny Hawke. Hard-bitten LAPD homicide detective. Always in trouble with his captain, always losing partners, but always battling for the truth, whatever it takes.

Against all the odds, against the usual story, their worlds are about to collide. It starts with a dead writer and a mysterious wedding invitation. It will end with a rabbit hole that goes so deep, Johnny and Penny might just come to question not just whodunnit, but whether they want to know the answer.

A cross-genre hybrid of Agatha Christie and Michael Connelly, The Cracked Mirror is the most imaginative and entertaining crime novel of the year, a genre-splicing rollercoaster with a poignantly emotional heart.
