Horrific Humour: Doug Johnstone & David Whitton

Hear from writers Doug Johnstone and David Whitton about their latest horrifically humorous mystery novels. Scottish author Johnstone presents The Great Silence, book three in the addictive The Skelfs series. When the matriarch of the Skelf family discovers a human foot while walking the dog, a perplexing case presents itself to the darkly humorous family of funeral directors and private investigators. Toronto-based David Whitton presents Seven Down, his quirky character-driven debut novel, about seven hotel employees puzzling out the events of a botched assassination attempt.
