This session takes us from the streets of Mumbai to the suburbs of Reykjavik and the bright lights of New York City, as we find out how and where authors make their characters come to life.

Vaseem Khan's fourth Baby Ganesh Agency Investigation, Murder at the Grand Raj Palace, find Inspector Ashwin Chopra (Rtd) and his elephant sidekick investigating the apparent suicide of an American billionaire at Mumbai's swankiest hotel. In The Janus Run, Douglas Skelton writes about New York for the first time. His gritty thriller features a deadly secret organisation and a false accusation of murder. Yrsa Sigurdardottir's The Reckoning finds detective Huldar and child psychologist Freyja chasing a mysterious and chilling prediction in a race against time to prevent six murders.

Chaired by James Naughtie
