The Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books

"This book tells the story of crime fiction published during the first half of the twentieth century. The diversity of this much-loved genre is breathtaking, and so much greater than many critics have suggested. To illustrate this, the leading expert on classic crime discusses one hundred books ranging from The Hound of the Baskervilles to Strangers on a Train which highlight the entertaining plots, the literary achievements, and the social significance of vintage crime fiction."
**There are 103 books in this list because one is the title book, and weirdly even though it is called "The Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books" there are actually 102 books covered.
