E-BOOKS: 101 BEST TV CRIME SERIES!

E-BOOKS: 101 BEST TV CRIME SERIES!

MARK TIMLIN ~ $4.99

In this shamelessly personal view of the 101 Best TV Crime Series, Mark Timlin has taken the straightforward approach of including any crime show that he's enjoyed since he was small.

Fortunately, given his great age, that encompasses an enormous range of shows, from the good, to the bad, to the plain bizarre. Classics range from Z-Cars, to Hill Street Blues, The Professionals, The Bill and Callan, but Mark also includes 77 Sunset Strip, Highway Patrol and Johnny Staccato from the late 50s, the Birmingham-based Gangsters from the mid-70s and the more recent 55 Degrees North – and of course lots more.

Packed with information and curious facts, there is nostalgia aplenty, sharp opinions and probably much to disagree with and dispute – and of course, that's the point – amuse your friends, irritate your enemies and enter into the debate – this book is the perfect jumping off point for sorting out your own personal Top Ten.
