Guardian books: Crime

Thanks to drasecretcampus I have a full list of the 147 books the Guardian lists in the Crime section of its 1000 must-read novels. As before, I've bolded those that I've read; none unfinished and only one that I didn't like. Today's score is 33 out of 147, compared with yesterday's 25 out of 145. I confess I'm not tiotally sure I've read those particular Cornwell and Hiaasen novels, but I know I've read most of them especially the early ones.
