Maxim Jakubowski recommends

David Meltzer

Fairy Gunmother
Fairy Gunmother (1997)
(Belleville, book 1)
Daniel Pennac
"Already a bestseller in its native country, it deserves to be one here if there's any justice in the world of crime."

Candleland (2000)

Martyn Waites
"Martyn Waites's Candleland bears witness to the flowering of a new talent."

Ode to a Banker (2000)

Unnatural Fire (2000)
(Countess Ashby De La Zouche, book 1)
Fidelis Morgan
"A scintillating tale of murder and mayhem in 17th century London... Lusty, funny and gripping, this is one the best historical crime books in ages."

China Lake (2002)
(Evan Delaney, book 1)
Meg Gardiner
"With a colourful cast of richly delineated characters, a protagonist with whom the readers will easily identify - all big-hearted, quick-tongued and hair-trigger-tempered - this novel provides a fast-paced ride through some of the more dubious nooks and crannies of the American dream and is an impressive opening salvo by a Surrey-based expatriate who hits the bookshelves running."
Mandrake and Murder
Mandrake and Murder (2009)
(Robin & Marian Mysteries)
Clayton Emery
"Clayton Emery's lively Robin and Marian tales of historical crime, misdeeds and gallivanting are like a breath of fresh air."

"A high-octane read."
