CRIME FICTION & NONFICTION| GENRE

The crime genre typically deals with all aspects of crime - detection of crime, who-dunits, criminal patterns, behavior, and motives. The common structure witnessed (pun-intended!) in a crime novel follows the standard pattern of a crime being commited, an investigation into said crime, and resulting outcome of the investigation. Crime nonfiction books tend to deal directly with real life crimes and all aspects that surround them such as judicial proceedures, history of crime, biographies, studies, and many more!
