For writers and readers of mystery

“When a murder is satisfied, it isn’t the beginning of the story; it’s the middle. We shouldn’t forget that fact because murder has ripples.​”

Ian Rankin

Mystery Lists

In 1997 I set up a spread sheet catergarising mysteries by type, eg, Art, Bookshops Clerical, Historical, Journalist,  Medical, Golfing,Historical, Journalist, Police Pricedurals, Scuba Diving, Haloween, Christmas and so forth. Currently I have  64,257 titles anaysed into 315 different categories.  
Also 164 categories of mysteries sorted by place, ie in which countries, or cities they are set.
I have decided to post the links to these lists to this website. But it will take time. Meanwhile if anyone is seeking a particular list of mysteries please email me and I will send you whatever list you require, if I have it.
