Reviews of Crime (Fiction) Books

In my personal home library, the Crime Fiction is filed under Mysteries & Biographies of Criminals are filed under Biography. Here, they intermingle. As usual, the categories are amorphous & ultimately subject to my whim. Some mysteries might fit under literature better. Things like "The Malted Falcon" & "The Maltese Dog" are here because they're spin-offs of "The Maltese Falcon" even though they're really more Kids Books (for which I have no section). I might put everything by Patricia Highsmith here even though not everything by her is Crime Fiction.
