Catherine O’Flynn’s first novel What was Lost, the story of a missing child, modern media and the search for truth nearly 20 years on, was praised by reviewers as exceptional and haunting and was shortlisted for many literary awards. She discusses her work with another first-time novelist, Mari Strachan, author of The Earth Hums in B Flat a detective story of life in a small Welsh town on the brink of change in the 1950s. Both stories of secret lives, detection and truth.
