James Oswald Book Signing


Best-selling crime writer James Oswald will be at The Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns to discuss and sign copies of The Hangman’s Song in a free event organised by Waterstone’s at Primavera on Tuesday 4th March 7pm till 8.30pm.

The Hangman’s Song is the third novel in Oswald’s Inspector McLean series which is set in Edinburgh. The plot starts with a young man found hanging by a rope in his Edinburgh home. A simple, sad suicide, yet Detective Inspector Tony McLean is puzzled by the curious suicide note.

A second hanged man and another strange note hint at a sinister pattern. Investigating a brutal prostitution and human trafficking ring, McLean struggles to find time to link the two suicides. But the discovery of a third convinces him of malicious intent.

Digging deeper, McLean finds answers much closer to home than he expects. Something terrifying stalks the city streets, and bringing it to justice may destroy all he holds dear.

Oswald’s first two Detective Inspector McLean books have been massive bestsellers – reaching the top of national charts – and the first was a Richard and Judy book club pick. He has also written an epic fantasy series, as well as comic scripts and short stories.

In his spare time Oswald runs a 350-acre livestock farm in North East Fife, where he raises pedigree Highland cattle and New Zealand Romney sheep.
