The Old Swan Hotel
Meet four crime and thriller writers who share an enviable ability to maintain a rattling pace throughout their novels, grabbing readers by the throat on page one and refusing to let them go until the shattering conclusion.
The inimitable Frankie Boyle has swapped comedy for crime to great effect with his exhilarating debut Meantime set in his native Glasgow; multi-million seller Lisa Jewell always delivers and her latest, the enthralling The Family Remains, shows her at her dazzling best; Catherine Ryan Howard is collecting awards and readers at a rate of knots thanks to five gripping high-concept thrillers. Saima Mir’s stunning debut, the powerful and pacy The Khan, has firmly established her as an author on the rise. The panel is chaired by leading thriller writer Luca Veste.
