Event description

Description

We’ll be welcoming A.J. Finn, Ruth Ware and Stephanie Merritt in store, in a discussion of the new generation of authors working in the psychological thriller genre.

The psychological thriller has come to dominate the bestsellers lists, reshaping the landscape of fiction. Likened to thrillers, and to crime, the genre carves its own path of pacey, gripping narrative, with psychological and emotional depth and realism. Finn, Ware and Merritt will be discussing the new directions the genre is taking, and the possibilities that the form allows for.

The Woman in the Window is the debut of A.J. Finn. An engrossing reimagining of Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Finn’s novel is an expertly paced psychological thriller that is already being likened to Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. Having already been picked up to be made into a major motion picture, The Woman in the Window is both a well-wrought, swiftly paced thriller, and a more penetrating, earnest account of grief, trauma and resilience.

Joining AJ Finn in store, is Ruth Ware. Ruth is known for In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10. Her latest novel, The Lying Game, is a ‘gripping, unpredictable narrative that shifts like sand underfoot, and a plot that turns like the tide.’

Chairing the event, will be Stephanie Merritt. Perhaps best known for her work in historical fiction, as S.J. Parris, Stephanie has recently moved into the realm of psychological thrillers. While You Sleep is a ‘fantastically entertaining, yet deeply unsettling read,’ exploring grief and sexuality, in a haunting work of fiction.
