With lockdown easing, former Campbeltown detective turned author Simon McLean is now able to attend signings and talks about his best-selling book, The Ten Percent.

He recently visited The Celtic House in Bowmore, Islay, where Argyll and Bute MSP Jenni Minto, an Islay resident, secured her signed copy.

In the memoir, Simon, who is now retired, tells ‘the truth, the whole truth and something like the truth’ about his 40-year career which saw him progress from a rookie cop in the Wee Toon to a member of policing’s serious crime squad.
