Mark Billingham says the crime novel is “uniquely placed” to reflect the world through the crimes people commit, and to shine a light into some of the darker corners of society. Though commenting on political and social issues isn’t necessarily the purview of all crime novelists, these four masters of the genre have insightful observations well worth your attention. Tackling tough subjects from “honour” killings to cybercrime and online hacking, and from the intrusion of Iran’s tumultuous politics into a peace-loving Muslim community to police and council corruption in the midst of post-industrial deprivation in northern England, these crime novelists not only weave brilliant whodunits but also help us understand that the causes of those crimes are far more difficult to unravel than the crimes themselves.
