message 10: by George (new)

George Matusek (gmatusk) | 2 comments I nominate my all-time favorite mystery, "The Chill" (1963) by Ross Macdonald. Not only is it a great mystery with an unusually great ending, but it's also wonderful just as a literary novel.


message 11: by Donald (last edited Jun 08, 2013 10:12AM) (new)

Donald Scott (writeondon) | 87 comments Am new here, so hoping to do this correctly - I would like to nominate 'Crooked House' by Agatha Christie; it was her own favorite of her books, and is mine, as well. At the time of acceptance, her publisher even wanted her to change the ending, but she stuck to her guns and it's just one of my fave mysteries of all time for it. Crooked House by Agatha Christie


message 12: by Ann (new)

Ann | 12 comments Nocturne, Opus 1: Sea Foam
