I’ve always loved mysteries, suspense, thrillers and just a tiny bit of horror. Okay, so my horror is pretty much confined to Stephen King’s Christine and The Shining (loved it so much that I wrote an article on its inspiration, The Stanley Hotel, for New Mexico Journey). Other horror books have a tendency to give me nightmares, but I digress. I love mysteries and read them constantly. Here are just a few, and I really do mean just a few, of my favorite mystery books from over the years:

  • The Famous Five books by Enid Blyton
  • The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
  • Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier
  • Jamaica Inn by Daphne DuMaurier
  • The entire Alphabet Series by Sue Grafton (A is for Alibi, etc)
  • The Tuesday Club Murders by Agatha Christie
  • The Other Side of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon
  • The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
  • What the Dead Know by Laura Lippman
  • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  • The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
  • In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
