As the Book Festival celebrates its 40th anniversary, Val McDermid talks to Peggy Hughes about her work, and looks back over key events in her life as a writer, exploring the ways in which they have sparked her fiction. Alongside McDermid’s bestselling series featuring DCI Karen Pirie, there’s 1979 and 1989 – the first novels of a new series charting the adventures of her latest fictional icon, Allie Burns.
