Episode notes

The Killing Kind, this week’s Book Club novel, is an intense, high-class legal thriller. At the centre is Ingrid, a criminal barrister, and a man who becomes obsessed with her. He harasses her, burns down her house, ruins her relationship, and ultimately resorts to murder too.

Author Jane Casey joins Richard and Judy to talk about how helpful her criminal barrister husband was when she was writing the book. They all wonder whether they feel they’d have it in them to be a defence barrister given the moral dilemmas they must face, and ask whether psychopaths are born or made. Plus, Jane explains why she wanted other people to write the script for the TV adaptation of her book.
