Is it the luck of the Irish? Behold the emerald jewels of crime fiction!
Steve Cavanagh, a practicing lawyer, is guilty of being criminally good. His debut US-based legal thriller, The Defence, became the subject of an international bidding war. Stuart Neville also had a brilliant debut when The Twelve became one of the LA Times’ top crime novels in 2009, and introduced a major new voice to the genre.
New York Times bestseller, Brian McGilloway attracts critical acclaim for his fast-paced and incisive prose in his admired Inspector Benedict Devlin and Lucy Black series. Eoin McNamee, who writes under the pseudonym John Creed for the Jack Valentine series, is no stranger to praise, with The Blue Tango longlisted for the Booker Prize. Described as ‘genre to the core’ Adrian McKinty has been compared to David Peace and James Ellroy for his fast-paced prose.
Irish Noir was recorded live at Harrogate International Festivals’ Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in July 2019.
