Due to unforeseen circumstances, Chris has had to move the date of his appearance, with apologies for any inconvenience. Hope you can join us on the 6th of October. 

One hen weekend, seven secrets…but only one worth killing for.

Join the ever-ebullient Chris Brookmyre in the surroundings of Aberdeen Central Library, to celebrate his new novel, The Cliff House.

A private island, a luxury getaway. They are alone. They think.

Jen’s hen party is going to be out of control. The helicopter won’t be back for 72 hours. As well as Jen there’s the pop-diva and the estranged ex-bandmate, the tennis pro and the fashion guru, the embittered ex-sister-in-law, and the mouthy future sister-in-law. During the drunken chaos, one of them disappears. Then a message tells them that unless someone confesses her terrible secret to the others, their missing friend will be killed.

Problem is everyone has a secret. And nobody wants to tell.


It is 25 years since multi-award-winning Sunday Times bestseller Chris Brookmyre’s first book was published. Since then, he has established himself as one of the most popular crime writers in Scotland. His enthusiasm for hurling himself into extra-curricular activities such as the Scotland v England writers’ football, the Caledonian Challenge, Channel 5 Eggheads, the Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers and most recently BBC Question Time, is well known and means he has more to talk about than most. At Bloody Scotland last year, he earned bragging rights when Stephen King opened his event by holding up a copy of Chris’s book, Want You Gone, declaring it ‘fantastic.’ A TV adaptation of The Cut is in development with Glasgow-based company Highland Midge and Chris and his wife Marisa are currently writing the scripts.
