First published in 1931, this is a true classic of the genre. Francis Iles turned the crime novel on its head with this brilliantly gripping tale of psychological suspense. In MALICE AFORETHOUGHT, for the first time in crime fiction, the identity of the murderer was revealed on page 1. Includes an introduction by Colin Dexter. 'With MALICE AFORETHOUGHT Francis Iles created the modern crime novel' Peter Lovesey. 'We do not believe that one person in ten thousand will foresee the end even in the middle of the last page' Manchester Evening News. MALICE AFORETHOUGHT is currently being filmed for a 2 x 90-minute adaptation to be shown on ITV. Cast includes Ben Miller (JOHNNY ENGLISH); Barbara Flynn (HORNBLOWER, DEATH ON THE NILE); Megan Dodds (SPOOKS); Richard Armitage (NORTH AND SOUTH, COLD FEET).
Francis Iles is the pseudonym for Anthony Berkeley Cox, but it is for his two widely- acclaimed masterpieces, MALICE AFORETHOUGHT and BEFORE THE FACT, both written as Francis Iles, that he is most famous. Iles was also a literary reviewer for the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Times and the Guardian. He died in 1971.
