One of the first things to consider when setting out, therefore, is what kinds of expectations your story creates, so you can go about gratifying readers in surprising ways. This is particularly true of writing in a genre, where conventions can seem ironclad—or all too often degrade into formula. And formula, by definition, surprises no one.

The Differences Between a Crime Novel, Mystery Novel and Thriller Novel

There have never been so many dynamic books for suspense lovers, so many genuinely thrilling works that value character development, humanity under duress, and insight into society and the individual. In this new installment, August Snow is the only man who knows Mexicantown well enough to investigate a human trafficking ring taking advantage of ICE raids. This is noir as it was meant to be: incisive, socially conscious, distinctly situated, told with style. Lyndsay Faye continues to be the queen of smart, feminist historical crime writing with her Oregon-set The Paragon Hotel, in which a refugee from the Mafia washes up on the Pacific Coast in only to find herself engaged in battle with the powerful local branch of the KKK. Winters always finds a way to get at a larger truth about our present even as he plays games with what we consider to be an acceptable form of reality, and his new work is sure to delight in the science fiction and crime worlds. Barton excels at merging the political and the personal in uncomfortable and gripping ways; she is a former editor and senior writer for The Daily Mail, and made a big splash in the world of psychological thrillers with her first two novels, The Widow and The Child.

What comes below is a list of our favorite titles. Katherine has retreated to small-town life in the woods of Washington State with her son, Max—and a close protection detail of heavily-armed, elite members of the Swiss Guard. Harper is living in Paris, haunted by voices in his head and bone-tired after what turns out to be two and a half million years on Earth. Though Katherine and Harper have been prevented from remembering each other , baby Max has unwittingly stirred the interest of vengeful spirits—and only a worldwide and cosmic effort to save his life will bring Harper and Katherine together again. Meanwhile, from the shadows steps a defrocked priest named Astruc, whose face looks as if it has been clawed by some terrible beast and who hides his eyes behind blue lenses. Enigma of China by Qiu Xiaolong: Chief Inspector Chen Cao of the Shanghai Police Department is in an unusual situation—a poet by training and inclination, he was assigned by the party to the Police Department after he graduated college, where he has continued to shine. Zhou Keng—a trusted princeling, son of a major party member—was head of the Shanghai Housing Development Committee when a number of his corrupt practices were exposed on the internet.

When it comes to solving murders and foiling fiendish plots, do you prefer to see things left to the professionals? The Police Procedural is a special kind of mystery that follows a specific format and heavy on the police process. We're straight off the bat with somewhat of a superstar among police procedural novelists. Michael Connelly is a legend, and his Harry Bosch series is where it all started.
