This is not so much an announcement to fill your boots but instead is a reference to The Guardian‘s latest crime fiction list. It contains a splendid variety of offerings – something for everyone as the cliche says. Funnily enough, on this occasion we can demonstrate that a cliche is an oft-repeated truth because there is a wide variety and I would be surprised if you didn’t find one book to your taste.
The big difference between this list and others I’ve foregrounded is that The Guardian expects you to pay for the words you read. “Outrageous!” I hear you cry.
“Authors have bills to pay too,” is my immediate response. Writers are not charity cases.
