message 1: by Alison (new)

Alison Parry_jones | 20 comments Hi my name is Alison I am from scottsdale Az. I have always enjoyed a good mystery crime story. I enjoy many different types from cozies to more psychological thrillers my favourite
mystery authors are Anne Perry and Reginald Hill but I like most styles.

Welcome Alison. Glad you found us.

Happy Thanksgiving too.

Gary Van Cott | 187 comments It is always good to see Reginald Hill mentioned. I think he was a wonderful author whose books seem to have faded from the Goodreads world far too fast. There were some signs that he was working on another book when he passed away (a blurb was on his publisher's website, if I recall correctly). I wonder if it was far enough along for someone else to finish?

Marie-Jo Fortis | 118 comments Welcome, Allison. I'd wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, but I noticed your spelling of "favourite," so I assume you're not an American? British? Irish?

Feliks (dzerzhinsky) Let's name some good thrillers set in Arizona for this girl.

I can think of one:
Patchwork

Richard (ricoh) | 106 comments You've got some catching up to do. There are some contemporary authors well worth reading who carry on our wonderful heritage in the UK. I met {author:Leigh Russell|2919056] today and she tells me her books are going to the USA - Look out for Cut Short. Happy Reading

Lee Mossel | 106 comments It looks like introductions and a bit of self promotion is acceptable on this site. I'm "Lee", a retired petroleum geologist and, now, novelist. Originally from Oregon, I live in Parker, CO, near Denver. I have two published novels in an incipient crime thriller series featuring oilman turned PI, Cortlandt Scott. THE MURDER PROSPECT and THE TALUS SLOPE are available online in paperback through amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell's, and Tower Books; E-book editions of THE MURDER PROSPECT wherever e-books are sold; THE TALUS SLOPE e-book edition is available for Kindle. The Murder Prospect The Murder Prospect (Volume One) by Lee Mossel The Talus Slope (Cortlandt Scott Crime Thriller #2) by Lee Mossel The Talus Slope

Thanks for all of the interesting and informative suggestions!
I suppose I should also include the following authors that I've read, including E.W. Hornung for the Raffles collection, Sir A.C. Doyle, Emily Brightwell, who writes the Mrs. Jeffries Victorian series, Carola Dunn's delightful and impeccably historical Daisy Dalrymple series, Margery Allingham, and on a more modern note, M.C. Beaton/ Marion Chesney, Kerry Greenwood's Miss Fisher Mysteries,(also an engagingly modern television adaptation starring Essie Davis), P.D. James, Ruth Rendell's Inspector Wexford series, Clara Benson, Anne Cleeland, Rhys Bowen, and Lynn Florkiewicz.
And thanks also for the sugggestion of The Murder Prospect and The Talus Slope--they sound quite interesting.

Lee Mossel | 106 comments With respect to your impressive list, I HIGHLY suggest you give Jacqueline Winspear; Cristopher Fowler; and Ann Cleeves a read. It is VITALLY important that you read these "series" novels in chronological order as they are quite sequential. Good Reading!!
