"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
