I'd agree with this based on my own experience, but I'd also note that while libraries do (generally) have a mystery section, they are now also placing writers such as John Sandford, Chuck Logan, Carl Hiaasen and others in with the general fiction stacks. Rather like PW in its forecasts. It now puts authors one would normally expect to find under mystery, under fiction and the mystery section seems to be getting smaller and smaller.
