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.
(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.)
