Good cop/Bad cop has long been a staple of crime fiction but in the wake of the murders of George Floyd and Sarah Everard have the bad cops taken over from the good? Four leading crime writers debate whether real-world events have changed the police procedural forever. International bestseller Parker Bilal is the author of eight outstanding crime novels and is a master of the procedural; Jane Casey’s DC Maeve Kerrigan is a standout character in the genre and the series now numbers 13 exceptional books; AA Dhand is the creator of the unorthodox DCI Harry Virdee who patrols the streets of Bradford in four thrilling novels; Adam LeBor’s Detective Balthazar Kovacs works in the Budapest murder squad and Dohany Street is the electrifying final instalment of his Danube Blues trilogy. Journalist and broadcaster Gerry Foley leads the discussion.
