Are you a fan of thrillers?

Join authors Louise Candlish, Katherine Faulkner, Stephanie Wrobel in conversation with Shinan Govani about the lure of thrillers, and what makes them so appealing both on the page and on the screen.


The Heights by Louise Candlish

"Candlish just gets better and better and better. I didn't read The Heights, I inhaled it. Her sense of place is second to none and her attention to detail is forensic. She's absolutely at the top of her game."

- Lisa Jewell, bestselling author of Invisible Girl


The Heights is a tall, slender apartment building among warehouses in London. Its roof terrace is so discreet, you wouldn't know it existed if you weren't standing at the window of the flat directly opposite. But you are. And that's when you see a man up there-a man you'd recognize anywhere. He may be older now, but it's definitely him.

But that can't be because he's been dead for over two years. You know this for a fact.

Because you're the one who killed him.

Greenwich Park by Katherine Faulkner
"I devoured Greenwich Park in two greedy sittings. The writing is razor-sharp, the characters deliciously problematic, and the ending utterly gasp-worthy. You'll remember this thriller long after the final page."

- Robin Morgan-Bentley, author of The Wreckage 

  

Greenwich Park is a twisty, whip-smart debut thriller, as electrifying as the #1 New York Times bestseller The Girl on the Train, about impending motherhood, unreliable friendship, and the high price of keeping secrets.

This Might Hurt by Stephanie Wrobel
"A genius, ripped-from-the-headlines masterpiece with a cult at its centre. Inventive, disturbing, and tense, This Might Hurt hypnotizes the reader until we realize, too late, what is truly happening. The very definition of suspense, this extraordinary novel will steal your breath away."


- Samantha M. Bailey, USA Today and #1 national bestselling author of Woman on the Edge 


From the national and USA TODAY bestselling author of Darling Rose Gold comes a dark, thrilling novel about two sisters-one trapped in the clutches of a cult, the other in a web of her own lies.

Welcome to Wisewood. We'll keep your secrets if you keep ours.
Natalie Collins hasn't heard from her sister in more than half a year.

The last time they spoke, Kit was slogging from mundane workdays to obligatory happy hours to crying in the shower about their dead mother. She told Natalie she was sure there was something more out there.

And then she found Wisewood.
