Introducing local author, Gerry Docherty

Gerry Docherty is a former head teacher and author based in Clackmannanshire. 

His latest work is “Beyond Revanche” a fast paced thriller set in France around the period 1914. Politics, injustice, sacrifice, conspiracy, violence and murder stalk the grand boulevards of Paris. The main thread of events are witnessed by a young detective struggling to find acceptance and an assassin who is groomed to commit the final 'necessary' crime before war was declared in 1914.

Gerry has also written several historic plays including Lie Of the Land.  This tells the story of two cousins from the same small village in Scotland who won the Victoria Cross at the Battle of Loos in 1915.
