Alumni of Val McDermid’s New Blood panels from years past tell us how it went with their second books – and their third, fourth and fifth. Liam McIlvanney appeared in 2010 with All the Colours of the Town acclaimed by Val as, ‘authentic, atmospheric and ambitious.’ The Quaker is out this year. Kate Rhodes’ Crossbones Yard was picked in 2012, with Val praising the ‘fresh voice of the protagonist’. With five books in the Alice Quentin series, her latest, Hell Bay is out now.
Eva Dolan was a 2014 New Blood for Long Way Home. Three more in her acclaimed Zigic and Ferreira series followed. Val described her first standalone This is how it Ends as ‘imbued with passion.’ A Rising Man by Abir Mukherjee in the class of 2016, was hailed as ‘One of the most exciting debut novels I’ve read in years.’ His sequel in the Sam Wyndham series is A Necessary Evil. Voracious reader, Lee Child, chairs.
