Crime for our times

Tags: Crime and Thriller, Fiction, Politics

Broadcaster Paul Waters talks to Irish and British crime writers about their latest novels, what they tell us about society’s preoccupations, and how the genre might reflect on today’s global crises. Jane Casey’s The Cutting Place is set in the dark world of London’s elite gentlemen’s clubs; Alan Judd’s Accidental Agent, features a spy at the heart of the Brexit negotiations; Gary Donnelly’s Blood Will Be Born explores how historic crimes still haunt Northern Irish society; and Liz Nugent looks at the dark side of the cult of celebrity in Our Little Cruelties.
