Crime fiction’s villains are no longer just psychopathic killers or gang lords. Politicians have moved from being seen as wise leaders, ably representing communities and nations, to being regarded with increasing suspicion – devious, power-hungry egomaniacs. Sarah Vaughan, author of the bestselling Anatomy of a Scandal, D. B. John, author of the acclaimed North Korean thriller Star of the North, and Tony Kent, whose Belfast-set Killer Intent was selected for the Zoe Ball Book Club, will be asking if politicians are the new super villains of a post-truth world.
