We Only Carry Mysteries .... But We Can Order Almost Anything!

 

Bill's 2012 Best List

Colin Dexter, Last Bus for Woodstock. My first experience (gasp) with this well-established writer whom no mystery reader should overlook. Where have I been?

My first experience with this relatively new local author of fast-paced thrillers. The protagonist here is a grad student, a somewhat under-represented population in crime fiction. A great read.

Probably not based on fact, but a great idea. In 1939 President Roosevelt calls on young Jack Kennedy to be his undercover informant in Europe. Another great book club candidate (the book, not the informant).

First novel, traditional mystery set in West Virginia. Hopefully there will be many more. While we're selecting for book clubs, let's include this!

An asteroid is expected to devastate the Earth imminently. But a new police officer is given his first murder case, and he's going to solve it, end-of-the-world or not. Said to be second book in a trilogy; I hope he survives #3.

International intrigue based on fact. In WWII, a group of British women were arduously trained and parachuted into France to act as spies and saboteurs. We follow a fictional example. Good story, fine writing. An excellent choice for a book club.
