John McGhie, with Julie Wassmer

Whitstable-based author John McGhie talks to local crime writer Julie Wassmer about his debut novel White Highlands, a literary thriller and epic love story set in both the present day and Kenya in the 1950s during the Mau Mau uprising, one of the least known and darkest episodes in British colonial history. The book follows a twin narrative spanning the generations.

John McGhie has been an investigative journalist for the BBC, Channel Four News and the Observer, where he was Political Correspondent. He made the highly-acclaimed BBC documentary about Mau Mau, White Terror.
