From premise to resolution, Lucy V.Hay guides you through the craft of thriller writing, citing classic thrillers such as Psycho, The Shining, The Sixth Sense and Fatal Attraction and lesser-known gems like Red Eye, Desperate Measures, Impostor and Deviation.
The book also considers how the screenplay might be sold to investors, looking at high concept ideas, pitching, packaging and the realities of film finance.

How can limited locations create new opportunities in storytelling and financing? Why is the lone protagonist so in demand? Why are female characters so popular in thriller? And much, much more...
