If you are looking for a list of crime novels to take to the beach this summer other than the ones on the bestseller list, here are 11 books to consider. As the author of a novel that pays homage to Georges Simenon, Raymond Chandler, and Jim Thompson (all of whom I've accordingly included on this list), it should be no surprise that my taste in crime fiction is more focused on the past than the present. But like a good radio mix station, I've tried to include the greatest hits from the '80s, '90s, and today (and the '30s, and '40s, and 50s).

The Engagement (1933) by Georges Simenon
