About this category

Perhaps its because there are more guns than people (270 Million!).


Perhaps its the dreadful daytime television.


Perhaps its too much fast food.

 

But the fact is the murder rate in the US is about 3.5 times what it is in the UK.

The silver lining to this cloud is that the Americans do write some brilliant crime books - and it is these that we are celebrating in this special category.


From superstar authors such as Michael Connelly and Harlan Coben to ones you might never have heard of, you can try them all here.

 

All our featured titles have free Opening Extracts, and all the books can be bought from us with a 25% discount.
