Doug Johnstone and Louise Welsh: Death on the Islands

Palace Green Library




Scotland’s remote Orkney Islands become the atmospheric setting for new novels from two of Scotland’s best crime writers.

Set against a brutal, unforgiving landscape, Doug Johnstone’s Crash Land is a psychological thriller steeped in guilt, lust, deception and murder.

Louise Welsh’s No Dominion takes place seven years after the first outbreak of The Sweats. Two London survivors have washed up on rural Orkney, where a terrifying chain of events begins that will lead the protagonists deep into the post-apocalyptic world they tried to escape.
