"My Criminal World by Henry Sutton is sombre fun in which a crime novelist finds his new project almost as hard-going as his marriage until murder intrudes and provides him with fresh impetus. Sutton clearly knows crime fiction and its practitioners and it shows in this wry dissection" -- Ian Rankin "Hilarious... A double-dealing mystery that screams success" -- Mark Sanderson * Sunday Telegraph * "The meta-novel for crime fiction lovers, boasting two intertwined mysteries and an unnervingly insightful trip through the mind of a thriller writer: the obsession, the inspiration, the insecurities, and the compulsion to turn every last experience into plot" * Christopher Brookmyre * "If Patricia Cornwall and Martin Amis had a book together it would look just like My Criminal World - a wickedly funny novel that dances on the razor-thin line between entertainment and art, crime and punishment... As funny as all hell and as blood-pumping as any thriller, My Criminal World is a love letter to crime fiction" * Tony Parsons * "Sutton brilliantly lays bare the life of a desperate writer, lifts the lid on the murky world of crime fiction and throws in a damn good mystery to boot" * Mark Billingham *
