Laura Lippman was a journalist on the Baltimore Sun before becoming one of the most acclaimed novelists in America. Garnering huge respect from readers and writers alike with her award-winning standalone novels and Tess Monaghan detective series, she writes stories that are ‘deeply moving explorations of the human heart.’ Her latest, Sunburn
, is a tantalising modern version of the traditional noir novel.
Linwood Barclay also worked in the newspaper trade, moving from chief copy editor to columnist on the Toronto Star. His standalone thriller in 2007, No Time for Goodbye, catapulted him to the #1 internationally bestselling spot. He knows how to put readers through the wringer with page-turners of pulse-quickening pace. Parting Shot is his latest.
