Darkness, tension, unpredictability. We are a nation obsessed with the thriller – whether it’s a book, a TV series or a film. Why do we so love to have our blood pressure raised and our powers of deduction challenged?

Two experts in the field of this psychological invasion of our brains talk about the subject, and how they create their stories.

Marianne Kavanagh is a journalist who has worked on major women’s publications, and author of Should You Ask Me and most recently, Disturbance, a suspense thriller around truth and lies.

Lisa Jewell is the New York Times and Sunday Times best-selling author of 17 novels including most recently The Girls and When She Was Gone. Her latest, The Family Upstairs, is a grim tale around a family’s secrets.
