World Book Night: Bernard Cornwell recommends our very own Stuart MacBride!

Master of historical fiction, Bernard Cornwell has chosen to recommend Stuart MacBride’s Cold Granite as his World Book Night recommendation! When we spoke to Bernard and asked him to tell us why he had chosen Stuart he said…

‘Stuart MacBride’s thrillers are written with genuine humour, a dark imagination and superb storytelling skills. It’s rare to find a book that can make you laugh aloud and shudder with horror,and which you cannot put down.’

Bernard Cornwell

And if that doesn’t encourage you to read it, then we don’t know what will!
