Abstract

The incorporation of thematic and formal references to true-crime texts in recent British and Irish crime novels shows fiction authors acknowledging that they share an audience with true-crime podcasts, documentaries and books. At the same time, these authors assert the particular contribution that fiction makes to the raising of awareness of both real-world crime and its representations. Examples considered include novels by Ruth Rendell, Denise Mina and Catherine Ryan Howard.
