Crime fiction is a literary genre covering criminal activity, its motivations and methods, and its eventual resolution. Some works go beyond the crime and deal with the interpersonal dynamics between criminal and fellow criminal, criminal and lawful personage, and other significant people in the same sphere of influence.

Several recurring tropes and sub-genres exist within crime fiction, including detective stories, political thrillers, and heist tales.

The genre is flexible enough to bleed into other fiction genres, such as science fiction and classical horror.
