I'd argue that readers have always loved crime stories; what falls in and out of favor might be the flavor or subgenre. (For instance, the word "noir" being thrown around like crazy.

“I read like fiends smoke crack”

“The Other Him gave a creepy look that bordered on pity. Oh, you poor baby. Which was surreel. Was that what Hradie looked like when he was trying to look sympathetic? No wonder everybody seemed to want to punch him in the face.”
Duane Swierczynski, Point and Shoot

“The world will run you down and slam a tire over your exploding skull and not even wonder what it had just hit.”
