Elizabeth George is one of the most successful writers of crime fiction in the world. All her novels have appeared on bestseller lists in the UK, USA and Australia and several of them have been adapted for television by the BBC as the Inspector Lynley Mysteries. She has also written a collection of short stories and edited two crime anthologies. Now she shares this wealth of experience with would-be novelists and with crime fiction fans. Drawing extensively on her own work, and that of other bestselling writers including Stephen King, Harper Lee, Dennis Lehane and many others, she illustrates her points about plotting, characterisation and technique with great clarity. She also includes extracts from her own Journals – the diaries she keeps as she writes each of her novels – and these give us an unprecedented insight ino the creative mind, with all its highs and lows.


An impressively thorough and down-to-earth guide . . . a perfect DIY guide for the determined new novelist . . . deserves to be in print for many years to come.
