Crime Book

Crime

Discover crime fiction with our favourite detectives. Who can resist a good mystery? Show us the person who says they can, and we’ll show you the most suspicious person in the room! There’s something deeply fascinating about exploring the strange recesses of the human mind, and crime fiction allows readers to do just that without ever having to leave the comfort of your favourite reading chair!

But curling up with a great mystery is about more than just spending time with the (sometimes fascinatingly) morally depraved – it’s about keeping up with the great police officers, detectives or ordinary folks who bring them to justice. Crime fiction has some of the most diversity of any sub-genre – whether you’re interested in true crime, unsolved cases or classic whodunits, there will be something to match your tastes. As one of the most best-selling genres in modern publishing history, you’re bound to find something you won’t be able to put down!

When it comes to fantastic entries in the genre, you really can’t do any better than Scottish crime fiction. Not only do you have some of the great forerunners of the tradition (Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde, anyone?), but the greatest literary master of crime himself hailed from the north: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. That’s right: while his greatest creation lived in London (on Baker street, to be precise), never forget that Sherlock Holmes is a Scottish creation!

It’s not only Doyle that’s a shining star in the Scottish pantheon: some of the bestselling modern authors hail from our great motherland. Take Ian Rankin, for example, or Val McDiarmid. Or Robert Galbraith, the pseudonym of Edinburgh-resident J.K. Rowling. No matter your tastes, if you’re looking to buy crime fiction online you can always count on Kingdom Books to stock the latest and greatest in Scottish titles across all genres!

So what are you waiting for? Curl up this weekend with a good mystery!
