Join us for a thrilling evening of bone chilling suspense when the darker side of community – whether that be an island, a family or a friendship--is explored.  This will be a fantastic evening of crime fiction chat, when these authors will share some of their secrets of writing brilliant, gripping novels.

Kate Rhodes studied in the UK and in Texas, completing a PhD then becoming an English teacher. Before her career as a crime writer began, Kate wrote two award-winning collections of poetry. Kate's favourite hobby is travelling with her husband Dave, an artist and short story writer. Kate lives in Cambridge and is one of the original members of the influential crime writing group, Killer Women. She will be discussing her new novel, Burnt Island.

Rachel Abbot began her career as an independent author in 2011, with Only the Innocent, which became a No.1 bestseller on Kindle, topping the chart for four weeks. Since then, she has published eight further psychological thrillers and sold over 3 million copies. She is one of the top-selling authors of all time in the UK Kindle store, and her novels have been translated into 21 languages. Rachel splits her time between Alderney, a beautiful island off the coast of France, and the Le Marche region of Italy, where she is able to devote all her time to writing fiction.  She will be discussing her new novel, The Murder Game.

Rebecca Fleet lives and works in London. The House Swap was her debut thriller and her second, The Second Wife, examines love, loyalty and trust in a family torn apart by tragedy. It marries all of the suspense, tension and compulsion of the best psychological thrillers with a powerful, emotional portrait of our closest relationships.

Jake Kerridge is a journalist, reviewer and interviewer who has been the crime fiction critic of the Daily Telegraph since 2005.
