Congratulations to all the amazing authors and books on the list which includes so many of my writing heroes.
2017 was an epic year for crime fiction. Hunt down all 18 of these titles, and devour them!
"As ever, Hilary has an uncanny knack for conjuring up a scene or a character in a few words – the face of the pugilistic wife beater “like the skin setting on custard”; the miserable high-rise block “smelling of chip fat and orange ammonia”. As ever, Rome manages to be both vulnerable and tough, charismatic and brimful of gut feeling. And as ever, Hilary belts out a corker of a story, all wrapped up in her vivid, effortless prose. Long may Marnie Rome walk the streets of our capital."
