Joseph  (bluemanticore) | 31 comments I'm looking for a new series to read, one similar to an old love of mine Lilian Jackson Braun's The Cat Who series. In Braun's early books she has many clues and hints throughout the book that point to the culprit. For example, in one book the cat keeps staring at the cardinals and knocking over old prints of horses and the murderer turns out to be a jockey who rides a horse named Son of Cardinal. Can you suggest any other series that has clues given similar to that style? Thanks.

Please let me know what you think of these two writers.

Great minds think alike. I've recently started reading Peters's Peabody mysteries, I'm only up to book 3 but I'm liking it so far.

Vicki | 11 comments I have read all of the Cat Who books also. As far as clues go I really like the way J D Robb builds up the story in the In Death series. They have some dicey sex scenes and stronger language though.

Sue Grafton's alphabet series is also a good one. A is for Alibi
