The City & The City – China Miéville

Alright…. sort of crime, but set in twin city states where the inhabitants have to pretend not to see/hear etc one another and where certain streets are cross-hatched to warn of the otherwise invisible border, with the mysterious Breach – always unseen but swift to intervene – watching for infractions.

A bit “divided Berlin” meets Balkan ethnic interface/intermingling meets Urban fantasy meets Crime/thriller; and rather hard work (for me) as a result. link: The City & The City – China Mieville
