I love stories, says tartan noir novelist and Diamond Dagger winner Val McDermid. "My life has been book-ended and bookmarked by hearing them, reading them and telling them. In my mind's eye, I can see where each of these stories unfolds." In a remarkable memoir illuminated with a hundred color photos by Alan McCredie, McDermid takes us to the places that have featured in her books and the landscapes she has known all her life. Here are the iconic Isle of Skye and the majestic streets of Edinburgh, the undiscovered hideaways of the Highlands and the island wilderness of Jura, all portrayed in McDermid's evocative prose.
