Award-winning Scottish author Liam McIlvanney will take the TIFA virtual stage to present The Heretic, a story set seven years after the events of his popular 2018 novel, The Quaker. It is 1976 in Glasgow and tensions, violence and paranoia run high as Detective Duncan McCormack, who has returned to the city, is in dogged pursuit of gangland bosses when a series of violent murders among the city’s poor and destitute sparks an investigation connected to the past. Can McCormack uncover the truth while carefully guarding the secrets of his own? Join Liam McIlvanney for this engaging, virtual conversation about his well-crafted plots, deep characterizations and stylish prose.
