The Crime 100: 25 Writers, 4 Books Each
Our maverick English Teacher and genre enthusiast comes up with 25 noted authors in the field of mystery, detective, and crime fiction. He then selects 4 representative works of each author, most of which he has read. While historical importance has been taken into consideration, this is not a "100 Best" list; it is meant to be personal, idiosyncratic, and thought provoking.
