Hi everyone, we had a suggestion to start a new thread for our group so that you guys can share and discuss what mysteries and thrillers that you are currently reading or have just read. I would love for our group to stay active year round. Of course we still have the Book1CoziesClub for discussing cozy mysteries, so this will be a place for you to tell about any other mysteries or thrillers that you are currently reading or have finished. I encourage all members to join in and tell us what you are reading. Thanks Tim for the suggestion!

Tim Smith | 74 comments Thank you for adding this thread, Elizabeth!

I am close to finishing Masterpieces of Mystery In Four Volumes Detective Stories which is a compilation of detective from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and I have liked every short story in it so far and have been introduced to authors that I've never read before.

I am also about to start The Scorpion's Nest which is a modern day thriller with ties to a Nazi experiment form World War II.

Tim, when I saw Policewoman, my mind went immediately to Angie Dickinson! I hope you are enjoying all your current reads. The only mystery that I'm reading right now is The Listening Woman by Tony Hillerman. I'm supposed to read Skinwalkers for local bookclub by the 20th and I'm trying to read the earlier books in the series first. I probably won't get them read in time, but it's a good goal.
I want to start Mad Season soon, which is this month's pick for the #Book1CoziesClub, but I'm also doing a summer library challenge and I haven't been able to figure out how to fit it in with the challenges.
Happy Reading.

Some are but most of his books are standalone. The Rambo books are a series, of course, and Murder as a Fine Art is the first one of a series. I didn't read any of his books until earlier this year and he has become one of my favorite authors.
