Great crime fiction is literally literary, and as good as any highbrow offering. When you’ve got prose and plot, you’ve got the lot, and these four writers are rightly acclaimed for their wordsmithery.

Will Dean’s electrifying thriller The Last Passenger is a seagoing suspense that dips and twists like the perfect storm. The Square of Sevens is an epic, sprawling wonder of an historical novel proving Laura Shepherd-Robinson’s talent for language and storytelling. Abir Mukherjee’s highly celebrated Wyndham and Banerjee series vividly brings Raj-era India to life with its wealth of stylish writing. Jacob Ross has welded his literary skills to heart-stopping plot in two extraordinary crime novels, the most recent of which is Black Rain Falling. Number one bestseller SJ Parris chairs proceedings.
