Local author Robert Jeffrey was in town to sign copies of his new book, Peterhead: The Inside Story of Scotland’s Toughest Prison.

He stopped by WH Smith on Friday, January 3 to sign books and chat to readers.

Robert said: “The signing has been pretty good, there has been lots of local interest and people have had good things to say about it. I’m very impressed with the keen interest in the area.

“There have been one or two children buying a copy for family members and its good to see they have an interest in reading.”

He added: “I’m pleased the book has done very well and I think it has hit the button for local interest as there was a community fight for the jail and with the new one rising from the dust, people are keen to remember the past of Peterhead and its Prison.”
