Best Mystery Books – A great Guide

I have thought we would put my powers of deduction for the test and sniff out your best new books around. In my experience, mystery fiction is not a repaired genre but can include elements of crime hype, spy thrillers and even your supernatural. They are books to keep you hooked. Books to curl up with upon rainy afternoons, to eagerly delve into on your daily commute and to keep you awake long into the night using twists and becomes.

Anyway, I’m sure your suspense is killing an individual. Here are my top books that represent the best in mystery fiction.

10. The Riddle from the Sands – Erskine Childers

He set out as a sailor man and returned as a spy. This landmark spy novel comes with adventure…

Any time Carruthers is invited on the sailing holiday to the Baltic with his friend, he looks forward an appropriate stay on board a new yacht. Imagine his or her surprise when he learns that all they have can be a rowboat and learns that the real reason for the particular trip is to keep an eye on some German warships which can be gathering in secret around the Frisian islands. Who are the actual mysterious sailors they will meet along the way? Can they even trust their fellow Englishmen? Although some with the naval terminology may go too deep, it’s hard not to immerse oneself in the reluctant heroes’ dangerous adventure. The book comes with a selection of maps, in order to follow the journey more closely. An oldie but many definitely a goodie.

9. The Redbreast- Jo Nesbo

The first in the Harry Hole novels to become translated from Norwegian to English and my first Nesbo read…

There is something about the land of icy fjords, misty mountains along with long winter evenings that lends itself completely to a good old-fashioned mystery. Nevertheless the romantic Scandi landscape doesn’t appear in this fresh, where ghosts from the Second World War haunt the investigation of a modern day assassination attempt and pieces of the puzzle are brought together through a series of flashbacks relating to the Eastern Front throughout 1942, war-torn Vienna and the neo-Nazi underbelly of the downtown area Oslo. Nesbo’s writing is terifficly fast-paced and his charmingly incompetent, alcohol addiction detective often brings some much needed amusing relief. It was a novel that actually kept me betting until the very end using mistaken identities and complicated past lives. It left some fabulous threads loose at the end that will undoubtedly keep Inspector Hole (and myself!) busy in the future.

8. Death Involves Pemberley- P.D. James

This is the crime fresh that Jane Austen in no way wrote!…

Six decades after Elizabeth as well as Mr Darcy overcome their pride and prejudices, they become entangled in their very own murder mystery inside grounds of their residence, Pemberley. Lydia Wickham, Elizabeth’s sister arrives the night before the annual Pemberley ball and screams in which her husband and his awesome friend have been murdered out in the woods (which are incidentally reported to be haunted). P.D. James adopts a writing style worthy of Austen and I rapidly felt transported to the Regency era. As it is interesting to find out how she can deal solving a crime with no her beloved forensic research, this book could very well be most intriguing given it helps shed light on the biggest mystery for Pride and Prejudice fans. So what happened next?!
