Elgin library to welcome acclaimed author Alex Gray

Press release   •   Mar 11, 2019 17:54 GMT

ELGIN library will welcome acclaimed author, Alex Gray, later this month.

As part of her national tour launching her latest book The Stalker, the new DS Lorimer novel, Alex Gray will  deliver a talk at Elgin Library on Thursday 28 March at 7pm. 

Alex is a regular on the Scottish bestseller lists, and her previous novels include Five Ways to Kill a Man, Glasgow Kiss, Pitch Black, The Riverman, Never Somewhere Else, The Swedish Girl and Keep the Midnight Out. She is the co-founder of the international crime writing festival, Bloody Scotland.

The new novel deals with Detective Superintendent William Lorimer's wife, Maggie, at a time when her first book is published. Joy soon turns to fear when a mysterious stranger starts following Maggie on her publicity tour.

Crime fiction has been the most popular genre of books borrowed from Moray's libraries for some time now and to have another renowned author of this type is sure to thrill not only readers of murder mysteries but all avid readers.

Waterstones of Elgin will be selling copies of the book on the evening and Alex will be signing any copies purchased.

Tickets cost £5 and are available online at, or from Elgin Library by calling 01343 562602.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
