Another exciting newcomer is British author Emma Flint, whose Little Deaths Picador fictionalises the real-life s case of a New York mother suspected of killing her children: the story unfolds after a tabloid reporter worries that hacks, cops and gossips have rushed to judgment. At the other end of a career, John Grisham , approaching 40 novels, surely has no financial or egotistical need to keep proving himself, but showed impressive creative hunger by releasing two smart books this year, Camino Island and The Rooster Bar both Hodder.
The latter is introduced by Sophie Hannah, who confirmed that she is one of the strongest successors to the James-Rendell line with Did You See Melody?
In this crisp who-did-what? With Magpie Murders , Anthony Horowitz established himself at the playful and experimental end of the mystery spectrum. The Word Is Murder Century raises the game-playing to Olympic level as a prolific novelist and TV screenwriter called Anthony Horowitz is tapped up by a disgraced detective to co-investigate a killing.
Another author who likes to challenge generic expectations, Dennis Lehane seems to have abandoned the suspense form of his Mystic River and Shutter Island completely in the first half of Since We Fell Little, Brown.

The Most Anticipated Crime, Mystery, and Thriller Titles of 2018
In her debut, Haynes creates an outstanding malevolent character in Lee Brightman—the handsome, charismatic boyfriend who turns out to be obsessive, manipulative and dangerous. In addition, the pacing is brilliant, and the plotting superb. Eight people are invited to a house on a remote island off the Devon coast, and two servants are already present. The rhyme describes ten deaths. Then—one by one—the characters are murdered.
Given that there are no hiding places on the island, the murderer is evidently one of the ten characters. A masterpiece. I read this book many years ago, and can still easily recall its unnerving atmosphere. Astrid Bell is a fabulous character—a bicycle messenger who is knocked off her bike by a woman who turns up dead the next day.

Then Astrid is linked to a second murder. I love the claustrophobic sense you get from the disparate characters living in a closed environment. Then the novel switches, and the final section is eerily told from the point of view of the murderer. Subscribers: to set up your digital access click here. To subscribe, click here.
