Irish Noir in 2015

Taken for Dead, Graham Masterton

The ever excellent Declan Burke has started to compile a list of highly anticipated Irish Crime Fiction books due for publication in the coming months. These include :

Adrian McKinty , Gun street Girl  (January 8)
Graham Masterton, Taken for Dead (February 12)
Steve Cavanagh, The Defence  (March 12)
John Connolly, A Song of Shadows (April 9)
Alex Barclay, Killing Ways,  (April 9)
Jarlath Gregory, The Organised Criminal  (April 9)

What’s more, Declan  will be updating  his list regularly throughout the year, thus providing a snapshot of one year of production in the long  history of  Irish Crime Fiction in general. But, too, in the considerably shorter history of Irish Noir, a publishing phenomenon, which only started 20 years ago. Thus, this is also an occasion to reflect on the maturity gained by Irish Noir and the generation which brought it to the world. That Declan Burke is one of them makes it of course all the more interesting.
