Murder Mysteries for you to solve...

Blood on the Bannocks graphic

And if there isn't an event happening near you, why not stage your own? Ann Cleeves has written some scripts especially for librarians and booksellers who would like to host their own murder mystery party.

Find out more about Bannocks and Blood - a DIY Shetland murder mystery - or just download all you need to stage your own from the Pan MacMillan website.

- or if you aren't ready to go out yet! There's also a Darkest Evening Murder Mystery for you to run online!
