A Study Of Crime Or Marple Mondays Or Miss Marple Means Murder Mondays.
Okay, so we don’t actually have Miss Marple here, nor is it Monday. But please enjoy a book from our intriguing selection of mysteries, thrillers, and whodunits. Murder mysteries and crime novels continually fascinate us. We like to think “of course” when we find out who the culprit was, or “I would have done it differently” if you had committed the crime. They are cerebral, and dig into the recesses of consciousness, to the shadowy part of your mind that generally escapes prodding. It makes for a healthy brain to think like a Holmes. Are you up for the task? It’s elementary.
The Whisperer By Karin Fossum (2018)
Scandinavian crime novels are all the rage these days, and The Whisperer helps hold true to that statement. Renowned crime writer Karin Fossum, AKA the Norwegian Queen of Crime, dishes out this excellent character driven slow burn that will keep you guessing. With flawless writing, Fossum travels before and after a brutal crime, and each chapter unravels more layers onto our complex and troubled protagonist.
The Glass Hotel: A Novel By Emily St. John Mandel (2020)
From the award winning author of Station Eleven comes a tale of intrigue, mystery, murder, and Mauritania. St. John Mandel’s novel is replete with white-collar crime, fallout from calamity, people of dubious morality, and regrets. Hauntingly beautiful with sentences crafted so well that they must be art, you’ll enjoy following the characters through locations like Vancouver Island and massive ocean bound container ships.
Camino Winds By John Grisham (2020)
The sequel to Camino Island is a bit of a departure from the courtroom drama that Grisham is well known (incredibly famous) for. After a deadly hurricane, a bookshop owner and his author friends discover one among them has been killed. Was the death a direct result from natural disaster, or was there something more malicious at play. Bruce Cable and his cadre of interesting acquaintances are bound to find out.
