Event description
Best-selling author Adrian McKinty will discuss his high-concept thriller The Chain, in conversation with fellow novelist Liam McIlvanney.

About this Event

Adrian McKinty’s recent history reads like a novel in its own right. Two years ago, having seen his family evicted from their home because he couldn’t make the rent, McKinty had given up writing and was driving an Uber when his agent persuaded him to give his dream of literary glory one last shot.

The resulting thriller, The Chain, is being published in thirty-five territories and is already a New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller. Paramount recently bought the movie rights for a seven-figure sum.

The Chain is a brilliant example of the ‘high-concept’ thriller, a ‘book with a hook’ – a premise that draws readers in and propels the narrative forward.

McKinty will talk with fellow crime writer Liam McIlvanney about the process of writing a high-concept thriller, his phenomenal recent run of success, and where he goes from here.
