The good news is that Christmas is only 24 days away and if you’ve carefully scribed your letter to Sanda then there’s bound to be plenty of crime fiction in your stocking, right? Crime fiction such as the wonderful top five debuts of 2015, perhaps, which our team chose especially for New Talent November.

We’ve done our best this month to cover new crime novelists, as well as those who self-publish or have been writing for indie publishers that don’t have the marketing might of the Random Houses and HarperCollinses of this world. The most popular articles we’ve run have included our look at the 12 debut novels that changed crime fiction, the seven rising stars of American crime, and the Ten to Taste article where we pointed you towards 10 self-published and indie gems.
