The best place to start a crime novel is as near to the end of the story as possible, so John le Carré said. But how do you know what the story is? Everyone’s ideas, resources and experiences are different.

This book will help you identify the right beginning, middle and end for your crime novel. It will help you to recognise your talent and realise your ambition in practical and realistic ways. Selling crime fiction is about standing out in a highly competitive and crowded market. Whether you are writing a police procedural or a psychological thriller, a contemporary or historical novel, one that incorporates elements of fantasy or of reportage, there are practical aspects and approaches that need to be to be considered. Plot, point of view and pace are the three most important. Others include suspense, mystery and surprise. There’s also the key issue of entertainment. No one wants to read a dull book, and no one wants to write one.

This guide will help new and experienced writers to navigate that journey with greater knowledge, enthusiasm and skill. It will accelerate the process of writing a truly standout crime novel in your own unique voice.
