Lisa Jewell is fast becoming one of the UK’s most popular crime writers. She was the biggest selling paperback crime novelist of 2020 with The Family Upstairs and she returns with The Night She Disappeared, a twisting page-turner about a missing teenage mum and a family hiding a terrible secret. Kia Abdullah has been lauded for her razor-sharp legal thrillers including Take It Back, which was listed on numerous ‘best thrillers of the year’ lists. Her new novel, Next of Kin centres on an ordinary day that becomes a nightmare when an aunt realises she has left her young nephew in a car, and the explosive trial that follows. Sam Baker talks to them about their gripping novels.
