Great execution of a great idea, especially for cinema fans (that like to read). "Big" is certainly apt. The book contain some great stories and authors. The background sections for each film/story are excellent. Recommended for crime readers and film lovers alike. 4.5 stars.

I really appreciate the advanced copy for review!!

Crime enthusiasts, settle in and get ready to read because this is definitely for any and all fans of crime films. We all love to read here, but nothing is as good as a great crime film. This book, edited by none other than Otto Penzler, will take you through stories that inspired great crime films.

The Big Book of Reel Murders is a fun and entertaining read for book lovers and cinephiles.  Each film is introduced with an interesting background section, including the original cast, and then follows with the story that inspired the film.  It's a great combination of real and reel reading, and I would be glad to see more books in a series like this.
