Caught Up In Crime Résumé

Caught Up In Crime: A Reader's Guide to Crime Fiction and Nonfiction Gary Warren Niebuhr

More than 600 crime titles are described and organized according to popular reading interests.

Welcome to the dark side of the crime genre, where creeps and psychopaths dominate and the good guys don't always win. Award winning librarian Gary Warren Niebuhr organizes and describes more than 600 crime titles according to popular reading tastes. He adopts the premise that, as in mystery, character is the defining appeal characteristic of these books, but the characters are of a different sort.

Books are arranged in three broad categories-professional criminals, caught up in crime, and criminal detectives. Within these chapters, titles are organized in sections on the mob, serial killers, white-collar crime, criminals on the run, victims, cops-gone-bad, rogues, and more. True Crime is separated from fictional works. Annotations give brief plot summaries, noting the special appeal of the characters involved to help anyone find the perfect book.


  • Describes and organizes more than 600 titles according to popular reading interests
  • Is thoroughly indexed according to title, author, subject, locations, and character
  • Includes brief biographical information as part of the author index
