Dulwich Books invites you to meet three up and coming thriller writers who are destined to be the next Gillian Flynns. Tickets are £10 and include a goodie bag of books, a selection of tarts (of the edible variety) and Tanqueray gin.
Christobel Kent, author of The Crooked House is a chilling and unnerving read, a literary and psychological thriller of the highest quality. See my review of The Crooked House.
Colette McBeth is author of The Life I left Behind, a thriller where the murder has already taken place. It takes skill to write a story where the murder takes place off stage and for the reader to be gripped and McBeth achieves this with aplomb. This is a crime novel that does not disappoint. See my review of The Life I Left Behind.
Rebecca Whitney is author of The Liar’s Chair, a stunning debut thriller that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the final page has been turned. See my review of The Liar’s Chair.
