Elisabeth de Mariaffi's debut short story collection landed her on the Scotiabank Giller Prize longlist. She returns this season with the psychological thriller, The Devil You Know (Simon & Schuster).

Check out this video to hear from Elisabeth about the novel, which follows rookie crime reporter Evie Jones, who is covering a case that is disturbingly similar to the cold case murder of her childhood best friend.

Elisabeth talks about women, fear, true crime and violence, including the real life cases, conversations and anxieties that led her to write The Devil You Know.
