Three mystery masters untangle topics relating to the genre including the influence of true crime and how they keep readers guessing… right til the very end.

Craving hair-raising whodunits? Look no further than these three masters. Filled with mysterious aristocrats and doublecrossing spies, critics praise Iona Whishaw’s A Deceptive Devotion as cementing her place “among the finest mystery writing in Canada.” The legacy of Blanche Potter’s infamous father, cult leader and killer Chuck Varner, returns to haunt her in Journey Prize winner Nathan Ripley’s new thriller, Your Life Is Mine. Sarah Leavitt proves that even this genre of shock and surprise can be kept on its toes, as her chilling graphic novel Agnes, Murderess brings new life to the legend of an infamous West Coast madam and serial killer. In spine-chilling conversation, these authors untangle topics including the influence of true crime and how they keep readers guessing until the very end.
