Claire HarmanCLAIRE HARMANIn 1840 London was scandalised by the murder of Lord William Russell but behind the murder was a best-selling crime novel which had polarised public opinion and initiated a debate: can a work of fiction do real harm? MURDER BY THE BOOK re-opens the discussion. Claire is an award-winning biographer and author of the best-selling Jane’s Fame: How Jane Austen Conquered the World




Ambrose Perry authorAMBROSE PERRYAuthor Chris Brookmyre and consultant anaesthetist Dr Marisa Haetzman, pseudonym ‘Ambrose Perry’, have created a gripping historical crime series set in 1847 Edinburgh. Chris is the international best-selling author of over 20 novels. Marisa’s research uncovered the events on which the series is based. THE WAY OF ALL FLESH, is longlisted for the McIlvanney Prize.
