Thriller Night: Yrsa Sigurðardóttir & Shari Lapena

Friday 2 March, 6pm-7pm

Al Baraha 2, InterContinental

Two authors famous for their mastery of suspense unite to talk about how bringing the scares closer to home keeps readers on the edge of their seats.

Shari Lapena’s debut novel The Couple Next Door enjoyed international success as readers were gripped by the mystery of a missing child. Her new novel, A Stranger in the House, explores the darkness underlying domestic bliss.

Yrsa Sigurðardóttir is famous for examining the tensions caused when ordinary people in small communities do horrific things. Her Thóra Gudmundsdóttir series and new novels starring child trauma expert Freyja explore the dark side of human nature.

This panel is moderated by Robert Mitchell.
