Author and Artistic Director of macTheatre Barrie Jaimeson has recently released his gritty new thriller “Death at The Queen’s Head”.

When Alex Sowter, bar manager of the riverside pub is discovered horribly slaughtered on the terrace of The Queen’s Head, newly returned detective sergeant, Anne Edwards, is charged with discovering not only who killed him but why.

Does it have any link to a death seven years previously?  Will there be more murders?

And who is the strange man in the hooded sweatshirt?

Assistant manager, Charlotte Tibbs, now forced to take over the running of the pub, along with relatively new employee, Ben Matthews, also become embroiled in the search for the truth.
