Join us as we welcome CLARE MACKINTOSH in conversation with MJ WASSMER on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24 at 6:00 pm to celebrate the release of her new books A GAME OF LIES and I PROMISE IT WON'T ALWAYS HURT LIKE THIS.

ABOUT A GAME OF LIES:

They say the camera never lies. But on this show, you can't trust anything you see. Stranded in the Welsh mountains, seven reality show contestants have no idea what they've signed up for. Each of these strangers has a secret. If another player can guess the truth, they won't just be eliminated - they'll be exposed live on air. The stakes are higher than they'd ever imagined, and they're trapped. The disappearance of a contestant wasn't supposed to be part of the drama. Detective Ffion Morgan has to put aside what she's watched on screen, and find out who these people really are - knowing she can't trust any of them. And when a murderer strikes, Ffion knows every one of her suspects has an alibi ... and a secret worth killing for.

ABOUT I PROMISE IT WON'T ALWAYS HURT LIKE THIS: 18 ASSURANCES ON GRIEF:

The grieving book that New York Times bestselling author Clare Mackintosh needed herself years ago, this is a modern, accessible approach to grief when you don't know how to help or what to do, inspired by a viral social media post that touched millions as it assures the reader that there is a path through their darkness.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

With over 2 million copies of her books sold worldwide, number one bestseller Clare Mackintosh is the multi-award-winning author of I Let You Go, which was a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller and the fastest-selling title by a new crime writer in 2015. It also won the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year in 2016. Both Clare's second and third novels, I See You and Let Me Lie, were number one Sunday Times bestsellers. Her first three thrillers were selected for the Richard & Judy Book Club, and together have been translated into forty languages. After the End was published in 2019 and became an instant Sunday Times bestseller, and in 2021 Hostage flew straight into the top ten. Her new crime series, featuring Welsh detective DC Ffion Morgan, has been critically acclaimed, with both The Last Party and A Game of Lies hitting the Sunday Times top ten. Together, her books have spent more than sixty-five weeks in The Sunday Times bestseller lists.
