About LA Larkin

Thriller author, L.A. Larkin, has been described by James Phelan as ‘a world-class thriller writer’ and likened to Michael Crichton by The Guardian and Alistair MacLean by The Times.

Her new novel, PREY, reintroduces the feisty and resourceful investigative journalist Olivia Wolfe who was described by Sue Turnbull in The Age as, ‘a new breed of female heroine bounding into the hitherto masculine preserve of the action thriller.’

Social Media 

So many book launches and author talks have had to be cancelled, I’ve decided to run as many Quintettes as I can to share some great upcoming work – and let you stock up on things to read while we’re all self-isolating.


  • Thanks for asking me such great questions. I loved the one about the song. Really got me thinking. Born to Run is the perfect song for Olivia Wolfe.

    • And thanks for taking part! I always love the song question and have found some great new artists this way. I’m a long-time Bruce fan though, and even got to see him in concert once. Good luck with the book – can’t wait to read it!
