How the world became one big crime scene

I’ve been struggling with hefty workloads of varying kinds over the last few weeks (including finishing a new book), so not been posting as much as I’d have liked.  But I’ve been meaning to draw your attention to this excellent article from the Irish Times by the estimable Declan Burke, creator of the ever-wonderful Crime Always Pays blog.  The article’s a fascinating and thoughtful account of the trends in internationally-based crime fiction, which quotes some of the finest exponents in the field.  It also quotes me, somehow managing to shoehorn in an unforgivably pretentious quote from Gramsci, but you can just ignore that bit.
