In a glittering crime fiction canon, one figure continues to hold influence above all others. Agatha Christie remains an inspiration and these four disciples of the Dame explain why the Golden Age endures.

Janice Hallett’s meteoric rise continues with The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels, a novel as compulsive and cunning as her breakthrough books. Vaseem Khan’s ability to weave stylish, complex plots is on full display in his latest engrossing thriller Death of a Lesser God. Ragnar Jonasson’s Golden Age credentials shine through in his elegant, twisty crafting; his latest, Reykjavic, was co-written with Icelandic Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottír. A Game of Lies is the exhilarating and expertly plotted third outing for Clare Mackintosh’s complex and courageous DC Ffion Morgan. Radio presenter Stig Abell is in the chair.
