A guide by Claudia (Hartford, CT)

Products sampled from this guide:
I love, love, love getting lost in a good book about crime, murder, intrigue. Love it! My husband and I also love to watch movies about crime, either fictional or real. We've seen the Godfather movies about a hundred times and counting. So if you're like me, I've made a good list of my favorites for you to check out. Just make sure you keep your door locked!
