Edgar Allan PoeOctober is National Crime Prevention Month. Crime is the focus of some of the greatest works of literature.

Crime and Punishment (1866) is a famous psychological drama, with a 3rd-person omniscient narrator. You might also enjoy reading Lord Arthur Savile's Crime, by Oscar Wilde. Also read more from Agatha Christie and Edgar Allan Poe. Of course, Sherlock Holmes is one of the most famous detectives in literary history. Take a look at mystery classics and other resources related to mysteries.
