17 Best Crime Books of All Time

Our goal: Find the best Crime books according to the internet (not just one random person's opinion).

    Here's what we did:
  1. Type "best crime books" into our search engine and study the top 5+ pages.
  2. Add only the books mentioned 2+ times.
  3. Rank the results neatly for you here! 😊
    (It was a lot of work. But hey! That's why we're here, right?)
