The Bone Field coverSimon Kernick’s big breakthrough came with his novel Relentless, which became the best-selling thriller of 2007. Simon’s research is what makes his thrillers so authentic. He talks both on and off the record to members of Special Branch, the Anti-Terrorist Branch and the Serious and Organised Crime Agency, so he gets to hear first-hand what actually happens in the dark and murky underbelly of UK crime.

Simon will be signing copies of his latest thriller, The Bone Field, a mystery in which the discovery of a missing backpacker’s remains sparks a dark and terrifying murder hunt.

Then She Was Gone book coverLisa Jewell’s first book, Ralph’s Party, came out in 1998. Since then she has written another 14, from “curry and flatmates” novels in the nineties and noughties (Thirtynothing, Vince & Joy) to more serious ‘themed’ novels (After The Party, The Making Of Us), to domestic thrillers (The Girls, I Found You).

She will be signing copies of her gripping new psychological thriller Then She Was Gone, set ten years after the disappearance of a 15-year-old girl. Laurel has never given up hope of finding her missing daughter Ellie. Then she meets a charming stranger who sweeps her off her feet. But what really takes her breath away is meeting his nine-year-old daughter – because she is the image of Ellie.
