  1. I have to disagree with you strongly with one of these titles being called non-crime. The Devil of Pei Ling is very much a crime novel. It's nothing but mass murder on a gruesome scale! How is that not a crime novel? I guess you shelving it as horror. But I'd not only call it a crime novel I'd call it a detective novel first and foremost with heavy supernatural content.
