Follow up – mysteries

crime

Turns out you can talk about mysteries for a very long time and still leave without touching on some of your favorites.  If you stop by the library, pick up the sheet with some of the sub genres and examples from the desk under the bulletin board – along with information about our meetings in the new year.

So – just as a sample – Lynette had several new titles from well known authors like Louise Penny, Michael Connelly, Daniel Silva, John Grisham, Stephen King, Joseph Finder, Anne Perry and David Balducci along with titles from less well known authors:

Murder as a Fine Art and Ruler of the Night by David Morrell, Coffin Road by Peter May, Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner, Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil by Melina Marchetta, The Vainishing Year by Kate Moretti, Daisy in Chains by Sharon Bolton, and the Widowmaker by Paul Doiron.

Others discussed included A Death in the Small Hours and A Beautiful Blue Death by Charles Finch;  Norwegian by Night by Derek Miller, and titles by Alan Bradley.

We also talked about some older titles that might have slipped past you – A Touch of Frost by R. D. Wingfield (first in that series); Live Bait by P. J. Tracy; Uncivil Seasons by Michael Malone; Open Season by Archer Mayor; A Cure for all Diseases by Reginald Hill  and others – many others.

NEXT MONTH WE TACKLE THE CLASSICS and we can start by deciding what we identify as classics and what about a book puts it in that category.  Hope to see you there.

One thought on “Follow up – mysteries

  1. So sorry I missed the meeting. I thoroughly enjoyed “Book of Lost Fragrances” by M. J. Ross. Follows the House of L’Etoile from 1799 Egypt to today’s Paris. I’m currently reading “The Chinese Parrot” by Earl Derr Biggers, a Charlie Chan mystery. Just finished “The Girl from Venice,” which takes place in WWII Italy. Also in the middle of “The Boys who Challenged Hitler” by Phillip Hoose which is a true story of resistance in Danmark. After this I think I’ll put away war for a while. See you next month.
