    It was a bit smaller than I expected but a good book to have.

    I’m a bit of a fan of ‘titbit’ books that you can pick up; gain something useful from by way of inspiration, information, motivation and probably any other of a hundred other words ending in –ion; and put down without worrying about losing your place!This book certainly fulfils that criterion. It begins with an introduction that discusses the criteria for what can be considered a ‘crime’ novel and looks at its evolution from the early works of Poe through Conan-Doyle to today’s masters of the genre, such as Michael Connelly, Elmore Leonard and James Lee Burke.Most reasonable people would not expect to find all of their favoured tomes inside and it was in this spirit that I approached it when opening it for the first time. Yet I still found myself applauding the author when he had included something which, in my estimation, deserved inclusion, and railing against him when one of my favourites was missing!But to cut what could easily be a long story short: it’s an excellent little book that can be picked up at a ridiculously low ‘snip’, especially the kindle version!

    I liked this guide. It's 100 crime fiction authors in alphabetical order and has chatty little essays about each one, listing what the authors of this book thought were their best titles. Each author discussed has a Read On section which consists of some other recommended authors if you liked that author. Interspersed here and there in the book are some inserts listing titles in various subgenres, Locked Room Mysteries for example. Some titles are highlighted as being particularly excellent. In total about 600 books are discussed or listed in this pocket sized guide. The choices are quite stellar and well thought out. About as good as one can get for a book that is so small.
