"Popular Crime is bloodthirstily engrossing, and you can read it with the cover proudly showing, because this is an important study of American culture and the human animal's fascination with violence. Bill James deserves a standing ovation."--Stephen King
For true-crime afficianados, this book is a hoot. James has to be the least starchy serious writer I've run across in years. He has the gift of writing the way a person talks--no easy task, believe me--giving Popular Crime a folksy, conversational feel."--The New York Times Book Review
"Running through Popular Crime is an exploration of the enduring popularity of true crime. James' thought-provoking meditations elevate his book far above any routine recitation of facts."--The Seattle Times
"An engagingly written history of well-publicized deadly crimes."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"A very entertaining book, and it will instigate arguments even as it scores many important points."--The Washington Post
