Just read Hope Road by J barlow (Hope Road (1st John Ray mystery)) and loved it. very classy mystery, set in Leeds.

I am reading another mystery by him, Whatever Happened to Jerry Picdo, but although it's also great, it's set in the USA.

So... my question is, who are the up and coming crime writers from the north of england? There's Kerry Wilkinson, and a guy in Hull whose name I forget. Anyone else writing about Leeds?

Best, Paul Deller

Kate Ellis writes crime novels set in York - not Leeds admittedly but not far away - her Joe Plantagenet crime novels are set in the fictional city of Eborby which is readily identifiable as York to anyone who's been there.

Frances Brody has written three period crime novels set in and around Leeds.

I hadn't realised that - I'll have to look at those.

Try Stuart Pawson, although his books feature the fictitious town of Heckley. The location is based in the southern Pennines of Yorkshire and has a definite Yorkshire feel.

Love Peter Robinson's books, have read most of them. The Cleansing (DCI Tom Caton Manchester Crime Novels) by Bill Rogers was a very good read, not Leeds, but still based in the North. Can't think of any more at the moment.

Thanks for those suggestions! I know Peter Robinson, but Pawson and Ellis are new to me.
I have seen the Tom Caton books. Must try one.
I guess there's also David Pearce, but he's not really straight crime.

Cheers, PaulD

I have read and enjoyed them all. Hope you do too. It makes more sense if you read Peter Robinson's in order, but of course it's not essential.

I do try and read author's books in the order in which they are published - not always possible of course :-)

Del Boy: have just started The Cleansing (DCI Tom Caton Manchester Crime Novels). Liked the opening, ut haven't got far yet.

Caain: I reckon you should be pleased with Hope Road (1st John Ray mystery). Loved the main character.

Anne says:
Reginald Hill's Dalziel and Pascoe series starting with A Clubbable Woman. Quite a lot of Robert Barnard's stuff - try The Corpse at the Haworth Tandoori - a great title too.

OK, I know that neither of these authors is up and coming but they are really good.

The Haworth Tandoori is an actual restaurant, I did a double take then when I read the title of the book.

Hey, some great suggestions there! Love the idea of a mystery in an Indian restaurant...
Might even buy a PAPER book on this occasion!

No worries. It would be nice if they end up for the kindle eventually though.

Just dipped into A Game of Proof (The trials of Sarah Newby) and that looks like a very good read too. PaulD

This is slightly off topic. But I just lurrrrve Agatha Christie. I think she's soooooo underated in this country, and I would've have married her if she wasn't dead! Lol

A true master of her craft. Or should that be mistress?

Hi Paul
Yes as i said in my earlier post, i'm on the 3rd of the series , i enjoyed the first 2. The 3rd up to now hasn't been as much in the courtroom, but it's still good.

In reply to an earlier post on 27 Apr 2012 07:45:21 BDT
Anne's already mention Dalziel and Pascoe, but also try the Inspector Frost novels. RD Wingfield only wrote about six before he died which was a crying shame.
