Recipe for a psychological thriller!

Do you fancy cooking up your own psychological thriller? Then follow this handy recipe! Cooking time: 6 months to 3 years, depending upon the time you have available and how strong your motivation is. Difficulty level: high.


  • 1 – 4 narrators, unreliable
  • 1 – 2 police detectives, if desired
  • 1 method of transport
  • 6 pieces of evidence
  • several twists
  • 2 tbsp suspense
  • a pinch of paranoia
  • a handful of secrets

Mix well and add expletives to taste.

Cover with lies and refrigerate for 300 pages until thrilling.
