1412 Cartwright St, Vancouver

For thriller fans, the biggest secret is often how the genre’s seasoned storytellers create their page-turning late-night tales. Three award-winning mystery writers share their approach to the craft… and some of the scenes in their anticipated new titles. Michael Robotham’s The Other Wife features a son summoned to his father’s hospital bedside where he finds a distraught woman not his mother. New York Times–bestselling Liz Nugent asks what caused a seemingly normal man to suddenly become a violent abuser in Unravelling Oliver. On the heels of the bestselling I’m Thinking of Ending Things, currently in film production with Charlie Kauffman, Iain Reid shares Foe: a psychological mind-bender about a married couple, Junior and Hen, and their unexpected visitor. Prepare for shivers of anticipation, dread and delight.

Robert Wiersema is a Canadian author of three novels and a non-fiction book about Bruce Springsteen.
