Hook ‘em early and don’t let them go. These four authors know the secret of a killer opening scene and will dissect it for your delectation.

International bestseller Simon Toyne utilises all the tricks of his former TV trade to kickstart his eerie new thriller The Clearing. Liz Nugent has reeled off four #1 bestsellers in a row, and her dazzling fifth book, Strange Sally Diamond, showcases her gift for fiendishly clever openings. Will Carver is the twisted mind behind a series of highly original novels, the latest of which is the mesmeric Suicide Thursday. CJ Tudor is the master of the macabre, and the brutally fast-paced The Drift, is her most terrifying chiller yet. Fiona Cummins, author of All Of Us Are Broken, is in the chair.
