Of course we love history and the classics, the works of great artists and Nobel Prize winners. But there's nothing like an unputdownable mystery to really get our blood going—and as far as we're concerned, some of these have left behind their "genre fiction" roots to become real literature. 

 
Here we have selections from hot contemporary detective series and "golden age" classics, gripping psychological thrillers and superb historical fiction—some based on actual crimes and killers—written by authors from Arthur Conan Doyle to Joyce Carol Oates. We also have a fine range of film adaptations, original dramas, and television series on DVD, from Hollywood gangster pictures to British detective shows like Murder Investigation Team, Criminal Justice, and Midsomer Murders.
