The city and the city by China Miéville

Another fantastic (in more ways than one) book from China Mieville. This novel won a Hugo award and an Arthur C Clarke one, and has been hailed as one of Mieville’s best.
 
The plot is broadly a noir crime thriller, but as ever Mieville has a trick up his sleeve. This one is the setting of the book, which is outstanding. I don’t want to say more about it for fear of spoiling the wonderful slow-burning sense of discovery as one reads the novel, but it really is very well written.
 
If you’ve read and enjoyed a Mieville before, you can read this with confidence. If you’re new to Mieville, this is a great place to start.
