Clare Mackintosh, Sunday Times best-selling author and ChipLitFest founder and patron, introduces her latest breath-taking thriller, Hostage.

Described by Lee Child as “hypnotically good”, Hostage is a classic locked-room thriller about a non-stop flight from London to Sydney. Not long after take-off, flight attendant Mina receives a chilling anonymous note – someone wants to make sure the plane never reaches its destination. They’re demanding her cooperation and they know exactly how to get it.

Find out how Clare has become so famous for her twisty plots and how she knows she has found the perfect plot.

“A propulsive read – Hostage will have you questioning ‘what would you do’ at every turn” Karin Slaughter

Clare will be interviewed by BBC Oxford presenter, Kat Orman.
