Depeschen mit dem Leitwort The Carrier

  • A Man Without Breath by Philip Kerr

  • The Carrier by Sophie Hannah

Writer Andrew Taylor about new crime fiction novels by his colleagues Philip Kerr, Imogen Robertson, Lindsey Davis and Sophie Hannah. His reviews at The Spectator.

»My ideal is a book that is brilliantly written with a proper, literary use of language, but also with a really gripping plot. That’s why I really like Tana French, or Gone Girl [by Gillian Flynn] – properly good writers writing crime fiction that obeys all the rules of the genre, but being as original as possible within those rules.«
