New Crime Scene Book Club!

There has been an explosion in Irish Crime fiction recently, and it’s a phenomenon which is still gaining pace.

I attended a talk at NUI Maynooth a couple of weeks back discussing this very topic, and it would seem that not only has there been an upsurge in successful Irish Crime Writers/Writing, but the variety of prose within the genre has also been remarkable.

With Irish Crime Writing featuring so highly on the international scene, I got an idea which I hope you will be able to help me with.

Every month or so, I’m going to feature 6 crime novels as part of the New Crime Scene Book Club @writing.ie. They will be a mix of Irish and International writers, male & female, debut authors, and well established names, and also novels published only in digital format.

The idea is that you get a flavour of what’s happening within the Crime Scene Genre, and are given an opportunity to offer your feedback on the material currently available.

So why not pick just one title from the link below, read it, and then over the next month let me know what you think of it.

You can send your comments/reviews via the comment option at the Crime Scene site, or here at www.phillips-louise.com ,you can also email me at phillips.louisem0@gmail.com This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or even via Twitter @LouiseMPhillips -Sounds easy? Well most of the best things are!

  1. Great idea, Louise. I read your article on writing.ie but for some reason, I can't comment. I will try and read one of the books, but which one? they all look great and get back to you?)
