Summer Mystery Challenge


The idea of the Summer Mystery Challenge is to read six mystery novels by authors that you haven't read before. When I mentioned this challenge to my husband, he responsed, "Are there six authors that you don't already read?" Well, of course there are - despite the very many that I currently enjoy!

The following, in alphabetical order, are the six I've decided upon. I decided to try one of Dean Koontz' because both booklogged and chris have backed up my sister Cathy's claim that they are good. The other five are all novels I have picked up at the library's surplus sales over the past several years but haven't yet gotten around to reading.

  • Jennifer Apodaca - Dating Can Be Murder

  • Robert Barnard - The Bones in the Attic

  • Amy Gutman - Equivocal Death

  • Susan Kelly - Killing the Fatted Calf

  • Jonathon King - The Blue Edge of Midnight

  • Dean Koontz - To Be Decided Upon
    (chris recommended Odd Thomas, Fear Nothing, and The Good Guy, while booklogged has From the Corner of His Eye on her Something About Me list.)

    1. I'm a huge Dean Koontz fan...I highly recommend The Taking, Life Expectancy, or The Good Guy to start with! :)
