Search - List of Books by Iain McDowall
Iain McDowall is a British crime fiction author. He has written six novels in his ‘Crowby’ series, featuring the present-day investigations of Inspector Jacobson and his team of provincial police detectives. The Crowby novels broadly follow the conventions of the police procedural but they are distinguished by an unusual narrative emphasis on the point of view of their non-police protagonists. McDowall’s books are also characteristically political in their themes and concerns and McDowall is viewed (with approval) by some critics as a left-wing author. Since 2007, his books, in translation, have also achieved success in Germany.
