Thrillers and killers

Bestselling authors Jeff Abbott and Roger Smith join us in the studio to unveil their latest books out here in France, "Adrenaline", and "Dust Devils". They unlock the secrets of a hit thriller, and tell Catherine Nicholson why so many of us want to vicariously experience the drama and violence inherent to their books.

And on the big screen, we check out Ryan Gosling’s latest movie turn in the very noir “The Place Beyond The Pines”, and get a preview of star-studded magician crime thriller “Now You See Me”.
