First Novels - Irish Mystery Fiction

Saint Patrick's Day is a time to celebrate Irish culture.

So often we only focus on the better known writers of Irish fiction, such as James Joyce and Maeve Binchy.

To discover some new voices in Irish fiction, including one example of Irish-American fiction, consider one of these recent debut mystery novels:

Borderlands, by Brian McGilloway. 2008

In the Woods, by Tana French. 2007

The Chicago Way, by Michael Harvey. 2007

Christine Falls, by Benjamin Black. 2006

  1. Another great one is "Haunted ground" by Erin Hart. Intriguing first novel about a body found in a peat bog.
