MEDIA REVIEWS
"This guide for fans of crime fiction and nonfiction organizes more than 600 titles into separate categories of professional criminals, criminal detectives, and getting 'caught up in crime.' Niebuhr, an author and public library director in Wisconsin, provides plot summaries, publication information and brief subject cross-references such as kidnapping, organized crime and geographical locations. The 'caught up in crime' section further separates titles into themes of white-collar crime, serial killers, rogues, victims, and 'cops gone bad.' " - Reference & Research Book News
"Niebuhr shows off his knowledge of crime writing by listing many of the best older works, including some that are out of print (but, in these days of Internet book buying, still readily available). The only challenge that readers or readers' advisors face when confronted with so many excellent choices is deciding where to begin reading. Whether you're after capers, serial-killer tales, white-collar crime, mobsters, dirty cops or lawyers, criminals on the lam, amateur criminals, or any other kind of crime tale, this work is recommended as a thoughtful starting point." - Booklist
"Readers' guides are always welcome in the growing field of mystery literature." - ARBAonline
"For those who maintain a collection in the growing genre of crime fiction and nonfiction, Caught Up in Crime is an essential reference volume. . . . a guide to everything you'd need to develop, promote, and maintain a Crime/True Crime collection." - Catholic Library World
