Mystery and crime readers looking for great new reads, and librarians looking for fresh reading lists for patrons will love this new resource. It categorizes hundreds of popular crime fiction titles according to five broad features: character, setting, story, language and mood-and then into thematic lists as "Reading the Bones," "Dynamic Duos," "Love you to Death," and "Bright Lights, Dead Bodies." For each title, you'll find bibliographic information and a brief, punchy description, designed to spark reader interest. Use these lists to advise readers; create thematic reading lists for library Web sites, flyers, and newsletters; and as checklists or reading plans for those who enjoy mystery fiction. Buy two copies--one for the reference or readers' advisory resource shelf and another to circulate!
