Product Description

Review

This well organized, welcoming volume will be of interest to writers who are embarking upon writing crime fiction. Readers of the genre might also enjoy finding out more about the process that their favorite writers go through to create gripping works of mystery and suspense. The volume works as a reference resource, to identify specific items of interest, but could also be read from cover to cover. -- Annette Haldeman, Dept. of Legislative Services, Maryland General Assembly, USA Library Journal

This is a really inspiring book to dip into for would be crime writers. There are great sections and tips from authors and a substantial list of books to read and learn from. Well thought out and thoughtfully compiled. I'm now reading through the recommended book list and have found some previously unread gems!Brilliant!

I have read a vast number of How To Write books and have a pretty jaundiced view of them. However, I must say that this is an exception. It's a cleverly written guide to the genre with plenty of practical advice and is made real through a number of personal perspectives. This is just the type of guide one needs on the shelf.

I am half way through this book and one thing I like it is an easy read. It is a beginner crime novel writing book but would highly recommend it.
