Stuart will be discussing his latest novel, No Less The Devil, which was released in April this year. 

The book follows a recently freed killer as he calls on DS Lucy McVeigh for protection from forces even more brutal than himself. 

M. W. Craven is no stranger to hosting conversations with Bookends.
