Charlie Higson started writing when he was ten years old. After university, he was a singer and painter and decorator before he started writing for television. He went on to create and star in the hugely successful comedy series, The Fast Show. He is the author of the bestselling Young Bond books and the incredibly successful horror series, The Enemy. He joins us to discuss, Whatever Gets You Through the Night – a crime novel with a thrillingly dark heart about the truths that lurk beneath the picture postcard surface of a sunny Mediterranean idyll – his first adult crime novel in 25 years.


Praise for Whatever Gets You Through The Night

“A hugely enjoyable sun-soaked thriller: hard-edged but warm, tense but funny, vividly ultra-modern and yet deliciously old-fashioned”

– Christopher Brookmyre, author of Fallen Angel

“Charlie Higson coming back to the world of adult thrillers is a major event. And what a comeback. Higson’s new thriller will certainly get you through the night, though you may not get a lot of sleep…”

– Mark Billingham, author of the Tom Thorne series
