Actor turned writer John Gordon Sinclair, introduces his second novel crime thriller Blood Whispers, at this year’s Edinburgh International Book Festival. The second in a planned trilogy of novels sees lawyer Keira Lynch defending Albanian prostitute Kaltrina Dervishi, who is on the run from a Serbian gang intent on silencing her.
John Gordon Sinclair is probably best known for his role as awkward teenager in Gregory’s Girl, which he shot when he was 19. Having continuously worked in film, tv and theatre since then, Sinclair decided to give writing a shot. His debut Seventy Times Seven came out in 2012, and revolved around two Republican brothers from Belfast caught up in the Troubles.
