Peter May: Locked Down

The Tartan Noir Show

Jun 2 2020 • 1 hr 9 mins

In this final episode of the first series, we take you on a quick trip to the South of France with a brief dalliance in Minnesota. Critically acclaimed, international best seller, Peter May, joins Theresa Talbot from his home in France. He talks about his brand new book, Lockdown, written 15 years ago about a global pandemic which closes London down. Peter talks about digging deep in writing, the importance of research, and you’ll hear about his best-selling Lewis Trilogy, The China Thrillers and Enzo Files - there could be a new 7th book in the series coming next. Peter’s book recommendation is Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger - he predicts that it will be recognised as an American classic one day (remember, you heard it here first). And we have a great extract from the Bloody Scotland International Crime Writing Festival last year - Helen Fitzgerald, Louise Candlish and Catherine Steadman are interviewed by Russel McLean in the session, Till Death Do Us part.
