The Top Ten Mystery Shows Ever Ever Ever

Let me start here: I expect you to disagree with me. I expect you to argue.



I also expect that there are those out there who are rolling their eyes, thinking that I should be talking about books, not television.

Book Review: "The Good, The Bad and The Murderous: A Sid Chance Mystery" by Chester Campbell

The Good, The Bad and The Murderous: A Sid Chance Thriller is the second book in the series that began with The Surest Poison. As such, while this novel could be read as a stand-alone, there are the occasional references to the earlier book in the series. It is recommended that you read that book prior to this one.

More Praise for The Ice Woman

Fellow authors keep making me blush! Miranda Phillips Walker - author of the amazing Megan McKenna FBI Mysteries – sent this: “Austin Camacho masterfully choreographs a tale of suspense and international intrigue in The Ice Woman Assignment.

Haggard Hawk - a new Reebus?

Helloooo fellow crime fans!

Just thought I'd post a quick word about a novel I've just read called 'Haggard Hawk' by Marcus Barr.  Being a MASSIVE fan of Midsomer Murders, I went to have a look around the sets and villages where they shot a lot of the episodes.  I was in heaven!  Walking around the countryside where Barnaby and his various sidekicks brought down 'murderers most foul'... And what's so incredible, is that I survived to tell the tale!  Anyway, I…

Book Review: "Cover Of Snow" by Jenny Milchman

Everything changed for Nora Hamilton that January morning when she woke up alone. Brendan, her police officer husband, was not in the bed with her. The normal morning sounds he would have made were not present. No sounds of the shower, no smell of morning coffee, no nothing as the strange silence stretched on and on. She will soon discover the silence exists for a good reason-- the man who made love to her the night before has committed suicide.

 

Devastated and distraught,…
