when we will be talking about mysteries. Do you like your crime dark or do you prefer a gentler mystery (often called cozies which were defined as a book in which more tea than blood is spilled), a thriller, a spy story, a humorous romp, a police procedural? and I am sure there are more categories. Whatever you like, plan to join us on December 13 at the Maynard Library (Trustees Room) at 2:30 to wallow with us in some murder.
To get us started, Lynette offered some suggestions:
- Peter May: Has 3 series: Lewis Trilogy set in Scotland, Enzo Files set in France, China Series set around Beijing. My favorites are the Lewis Trilogy and the China series. He also has standalone books with the latest being Coffin Road released in October. Note, series are best read in order
- Ann Perry – 2 series William Monk; Charlotte and Thomas Pitt both set in London before 20 th century with lots of interesting history
- Under the Midnight Sun by Keigo Higashino; just released with great reviews; started reading; always interesting to try setting in Japan
- If John Grisham fan, The Whistler that was just released is entertaining
