Why we need Crime Fiction (and performance and activism)

Contemporary crime fiction is like a pendulum beam swinging backwards and forwards revealing and hiding modern britain in a way that no other form quite matches.

In crime fiction everyone is present. When you start reading you’re built in to the characters and plot in a way that makes you a participant. It’s a kind of stage where all the men, women and children are players. Crime writing helps us talk to each other.
