Nicole | 29 comments Thank you for posting this list.
There are a few names on it I don't know yet. I guess I must buy some new books. And find the time to read them.

C.  (Never msg.  Just comment!  Email if private.) (riedel) I'd love a list of mystery, period. "Crime" doesn't = mystery, which is often forgotten. It's my least favourite type. Who needs bodies? {giggle} I *adore* mysteries of the true sense: codes to decipher, secrets to seek out, hidden places to discover. Throw a ghost in it and you have yourself a fan! Carolyn

So true Carolyn and I do like mysteries the best too, but the Scots know how to write crime!


C.  (Never msg.  Just comment!  Email if private.) (riedel) I wonder how many paranormal Scots-writers there are. I have one compilation on my list and Robert Sutherland has spooky titles in his series. However I don't count those with debunked endings! If you entitle anything "haunting of" or "ghost of"; the content had better match the words! Oh how I loathe that ploy. Fiction has no excuse not to write it in. LOL! http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/2013/11...
