In this week's episode, award-winning crime writer Mark Billingham talks to best-selling American writer, Karin Slaughter. Throughout the episode, Karin talks about her roots in America's Deep South and how her hometown of Atlanta has changed; how the writing from the region and some of the true-life cases have influenced her work; the continuing fascination with serial killers; her new book The Good Daughter; and boob sweat. Yes, boob sweat. Elsewhere, our man with the spyglass, Paul Hirons, talks to British novelist Steve Mosby at the Theakston's Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival at Harrogate.
A Stab in the Dark is a UKTV Original production and is produced by Paul Hirons, Joel Porter and John Lemon.
Karin told us she's just finished Hannah Kent's, author of the acclaimed Burial Rights, new book, The Good People. She also enjoyed Eleanor Oliphant's Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine (once she figured it was a comedy), and she's also a fan of Liane Moriarty.
As for a good watch, Karin recommended Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul and The Americans.
