English Mysteries Club

Do you love mysteries written in the "English" style? I define the "English" mystery style as heavy on plot, character development and, perhaps most importantly, detail. These are not formulaic writers and these are not books to be read in one sitting. Rather - they are books to be read slowly and savoured and they often leave you guessing right up until the end.

Old School? Think Ngaio Marsh, Agatha Christie, and Dorothy Sayers. New school? Think John Connolly, P.D. James, and Colin Dexter.
