About Bloody Scotland: The Pen Name is Mightier Than the Sword: Haylen Beck, Sam Bourne, Jack Flynn

Meet three crime writers who have adopted pseudonyms to write top-class thrillers, despite being well-known and hugely successful under their own names. Haylen Beck is the nom du guerre of international bestseller Stuart Neville. His new novel Lost You sees a mother in a desperate hunt for her young son. Sam Bourne is the most successful male thriller writer in the UK today and also flourishes in his day job as journalist and broadcaster Jonathan Freedland. David Hosp is a Boston trial lawyer who has written five novels under his own name but it’s as Jack Flynn that he has released the acclaimed blockbuster Blood in the Water. Will the real author please stand up? And, most of all, what have they got to hide?

Chaired by Karen Robinson, editor of The Times and Sunday Times Crime Club.
