Bruce | 2153 comments Hi. I’m Bruce from Tampa. I’ve been a mystery and thriller fan for over 30 years, since I started watching the movies and reading the books for both James Bond and Sherlock Holmes. I progressed into Agatha Christie shortly after, and eventually the pulp/noir stories of authors such as Chandler and Hammett, and spy novelists such as Len Deighton and Le Carre. PD James is my favorite contemporary mystery writer, although she died not too long ago. I also enjoy Graham Greene’s thrillers, and I’d list him as my favorite general fiction author who falls into the general fiction genre, but not any sub genre, as he was very diverse. My favorite stories are probably the Sherlock Holmes stories.

Bruce | 2153 comments Thank you, Thomas and Nancy.

I may try those authors at some point.

I only moved to Tampa 2 years ago. Before moved here, I did go on a vacation with my parents to West Palm Beach.
