Bookreporter Talks To

Nov 18, 2022

Clare Mackintosh joins Carol Fitzgerald to talk about her latest novel, THE LAST PARTY, which is a blend of police procedural and psychological thriller. It’s set on the border of England and Wales, where each country has a lot of national pride at stake when a crime happens across the border. As Clare was writing, she realized that this would be the start of a three-book series featuring Detective Constable Ffion Morgan. She writes from multiple points of view and timelines, and discusses what drew her to write in that style and flesh out so many characters. They both love to swim, though Carol hands the cold water sans wetsuit swims over to Clare.
