Destination Murder: Alex Barclay and Lucy Foley with WC Ryan

From a luxury inn on a remote west coast peninsula in Ireland, to a Scottish hunting lodge, these dark stories are told by two of crimes leading female voices. Chaired by WC Ryan, author of House of Ghosts, a man who knows a thing or two about dangerous, lonely places. Lucy Foley’s departure to the dark side is her fourth bestseller, and Alex Barclay, the first lady of Irish crime, brings us her first Irish set standalone in a gripping event that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Alex Barclay lives in County Cork, Ireland. She is the bestselling author of Darkhouse and The Caller, as well as the Ren Bryce series. Alex Barclay’s debut novel Darkhouse was a top ten bestseller in the UK, France and Germany, and a number one bestseller in Ireland. Her latest novel I Confess is out now.

Lucy Foley studied English Literature at Durham and UCL universities. She then worked for several years as a fiction editor in the publishing industry – during which time she also wrote her debut, The Book of Lost and Found. The Hunting Party has been a bestselling sensation both in Ireland and the UK. Lucy now writes full-time, and is busy travelling (for research, naturally!) and working on her next novel.
