Following Nordic Noir and Euro Noir, essential companions to aficionados of the dark side of crime fiction, Barry Forshaw comes home to offer Brit Noir (which also includes the Republic of Ireland). These Forshaw guides are not merely lists of authors and titles; they are full of analysis and opinion, and are as useful to the beginner seeking to enter the world of noir as to the already hooked reader wanting to find out more. There is also a fascinating section on the films made of the books mentioned. (Pocket Essentials, 226pp, £8.99)
