Ed McBain/Evan Hunter by Erin E. MacDonald Book Resume:

This comprehensive companion provides detailed information about all of Evan Hunter’s/Ed McBain’s works, characters, and recurring themes. From police detective and crime stories to dramatic novels and films, this reference celebrates the vast body of literature of this versatile writer.
Mystery Classics on Film by Ron Miller Book Resume:
Watching the screen version of a classic mystery novel can be disappointing. By necessity or artistic license (or possibly just ego) changes are often made by the filmmakers--many of them ineffective or even detrimental. This book focuses on the screen adaptations of 65 famous mysteries and examines how the filmmakers either succeeded or failed in the telling of the story. Interviews with several famous mystery writers are included, with their comments on how filmmakers treated their work.
The Police Procedural by George N. Dove Book Resume:
In the late 1940s and early 1950s a new kind of detective story appeared on the scene. This was a story in which the mystery is solved by regular police detectives, usually working in teams and using ordinary police routines. This kind of narrative is customarily called the "police procedural" story. And it is the subject of this book. Though there has been numberless writers of these stories, there has never been a book of criticism before.
The Glitter Dome by Joseph Wambaugh Book Resume:
It’s the wildest bar in Chinatown, run by a proprietor named Wing who will steal your bar change every chance he gets. On payday the groupies mingle there with off-duty LAPD cops, including homicide detectives Martin Welborn and Al Mackey, who get assigned the case of a murdered Hollywood studio boss who may have been involved in some very strange and dangerous filmmaking. Hilarious at times, heartbreaking at others, this book was likened by theNew York Daily News to a “one-two combination that leaves the reader reeling.”
The Boys from Grover Avenue by George N. Dove Book Resume:
Ed McBain is a master of tone. He turns his material just a little off-axis. George Dove s study of McBain s imaginary city is both insightful and realistic. He gets at the heart of this major writer of police procedurals by examining the geography, the day-to-day happenings, and literary quality."
Scars of the Heart by Victoria Wayne Book Resume:
Martina Ramsey hasn't had an easy life. She's already lived through her worst nightmare, and if she doesn't find someone to help her now, she is doomed to relive it. Finding someone she could trust is virtually impossible, but when she turns to Cameron Masters, a private investigator who has been through hell himself, she feels he will understand the betrayal she has suffered, the mistrust she feels, the guilt she carries. He should. He's suffered them all himself. She knows from her own experience that the scars he hides underneath his shirt are not the only ones he has. As Cameron fights to protect his beautiful client he discovers he is losing his battle to protect himself from her. Martina is a fascinating, feisty spitfire who has a thing or two to teach him about life, about inner strength-and about love.
And Then She Was Gone by Rosalind Noonan Book Resume:
Eleven-year-old Lauren O'Neil vanished one sunny afternoon as she walked home from school. Six years later, her parents Rachel and Dan still tirelessly scour their Oregon hometown and beyond, always believing Lauren will be found. Then one day, the call comes. Lauren has been rescued from a secluded farm mere miles away, and her abductor has confessed. Yet her return is nothing like Rachel imagined. Though the revelations about what Lauren endured are shocking, most heartbreaking of all is to see the bright-eyed, assertive daughter she knew transformed into a wary, polite stranger. Lauren's first instinct is to flee. For years she's been told her parents forgot her; now she doubts the pieces of her life can ever fit together again. But Rachel refuses to lose her a second time. Little by little they must relearn what it means to be a family, trusting that their bond is strong enough to guide them back to each other. Intensely moving and absorbing, this is an extraordinary story told with sensitivity and grace, and filled with the depth and breadth of a mother's love. Praise for Rosalind Noonan "Noonan has a knack for page-turners and doesn't disappoint." --Publishers Weekly on All She Ever Wanted "The author once again takes on an emotional topic with great sensitivity." --Booklist on The Daughter She Used to Be "Reminiscent of Jodi Picoult's kind of tale. . .it's a keeper!" --New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson on One September Morning
The Journalism of Outrage by David L. Protess Book Resume:
This book is the first systematic study of investigative reporting in the post-Watergate era. The authors examine the historical roots, contemporary nature, and societal impact of this controversial form of reporting, which they call "the journalism of outrage." Contrary to the conventional wisdom that depicts muckrakers and policymakers as antagonists, the authors show how investigative journalists often collaborate with public policymakers to set the agenda for reform. Based on a decade-long program of research--highlighted by case studies of the life courses of six media investigations and interviews with a national sample of over 800 investigative journalists--they develop a new theory about the agenda-building role of media in American society.
Fiddlers by Ed McBain Book Resume:
A police detective hunts for a pattern in a puzzling murder spree in this mystery by “a master” (Time). A blind violinist taking a smoke break. A cosmetics sales rep cooking an omelet in her own kitchen. A college professor trudging home from class. A priest contemplating retirement in the rectory garden. An old woman walking her dog. These are the seemingly random targets, all shot twice in the face. But most serial killers don’t use guns. Most serial killers don’t strike five times in two weeks. And most serial killers’ victims have something more in common than just being over fifty years of age. Now it falls to Det. Steve Carella and his colleagues in the 87th Precinct to find a connection that will crack this case—before another body is found. As Entertainment Weekly said about this long-running, much-loved police procedural series: “Imagine your favorite Law & Order cast solving fresh mysteries into infinity, with no reruns, and you have some sense of McBain’s grand, ongoing accomplishment.”
Crime Films by Thomas Leitch Book Resume:
Focusing on ten films that span the range of the twentieth century, Thomas Leitch traces the transformation of three figures common to all crime films: the criminal, the victim and the avenger. He shows how the distinctions among them become blurred throughout the course of the century, reflecting and fostering a deep social ambivalence towards crime and criminals. The criminal, victim and avenger characters effectively map the shifting relations between subgenres (such as the erotic thriller and the police film) within the larger genre of crime film.
