Murder Mystery Books

If you read only thirteen mystery novels in your life, make them these.

You can't have a mystery without a mastermind to spin it. These authors spin the best.

Murder only goes so far before we need a hero to solve the crime and bring the matter to justice. These detectives to exactly that.

Not all crime fighters were men - check out these stellar sleuths from the fairer sex.

And even kids have had their hand at solving a mystery or two. From Encyclopedia Brown to Nancy Drew, these are the detectives who aren't even old enough to drive.
