Make ‘Em Laugh Make ‘Em Cry

Featuring: Mick Herron, Elly Griffiths, Lisa Jewell, Vaseem Khan, and Chair Ian Payne.

July 2019
Recorded live at HIF’s Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival

Readers have a good cry and a great laugh. These authors bring it all. Elly Griffiths created one of the most engaging characters in Ruth Galloway. Her latest, The Stone Circle went straight into the Sunday Times Bestseller list. Vaseem Khan takes us to India with the charming Inspector Chopra, who tackles corruption alongside his heartwarming sidekick, a baby elephant.

Lisa Jewell is a literary sensation. Her #1 thrillers are hailed for their emotionally engrossing characters who grip to the heart wrenching end. Witty, but angry too and heartbreaking, Mick Herron’s Jackson Lamb series brings the rollicking dramas of Slough House to vivid life. ITV presenter Ian Payne, keeps emotions in check as Chair.

Mick Herron’s book Joe Country has been shortlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel Of The Year 2020. Vote for Joe Country, and discover the shortlist here.
