Spend an hour eavesdropping on two of the most talented and successful writers at work today. Lisa Jewell and Ruth Ware have both topped global bestseller lists while pushing the boundaries of the genre; leading crime fiction in new and exciting directions.

Lisa is published in over 25 languages and has sold more than 10 million books worldwide. The queen of psychological suspense, she effortlessly and expertly leads readers down twisting dark alleys. Her latest novel is the addictive and unsettling None of This is True. Ruth’s first seven novels have been translated into 40 languages and deservedly garnered an army of ardent fans across the world. From In a Dark, Dark Wood to The IT Girl, she has displayed a unique talent for storytelling, at once both classic and innovative.
