More Official Book Lists...
Here you will find lists of recommended mystery books. It is
a good start into the mystery genre. I haven't read all the books
listed but the lists are written by mystery writers, organizations, book
clubs, readers votes, etc. so they should be a good source. What is more
many books appear in almost every list( ex: The Murder Of Rodger
Acroyd") which is a good sign that only the top mystery books are
listed. There are also lists of more recent books if you are interested

Here I consider a wide variety of movies. As long as there is a mysterious situation that is gradually revealed in the movie,
which is not obvious to guess, and the ending is not the usual obvious Hollywood ending.
Basically movies that present some chalenge to guees the outcome of the movie.
Mostly newer movies are includedd.
Book adaptations, no matter how great when reading by the fireplace on a rainy day, in my opinion require lots of changes in order to overcome the sitcom/theater feel of them and become good movies, and therefore are also not included.
Authors: I looked at many mystery sites on the Internet and compiled
a list of the best Mystery Authors. Most of them are classic mystery
authors that do not write anymore. Nevertheless, some of the best
mystery books were written by them. For each author you will find a
biography, a photo, list of his works and links to other webpages about
In this section you will find the most famous mystery detectives.
Probably you know many of them. For each detective there is a link to
the books he or she is the main character in.
books: Public domain mystery books that are available to read free
online. The links are to external websites. If you are interested to
read more online books you can go to www.Blackmask.com. They have
downloadable books in many formats( palm, Pocketpc, etc.)
Many links to the best mystery sites on the Internet. You can find links
to book reviews sites, authors sites, book discussions, general mystery
sites and so on.
Christie: Since in my opinion Agatha Christie is the best mystery
writer of all times I created a website specially about her. Here you
will find Agatha Christie's biography, interesting facts and
articles, list of her books, summary and reviews off all her books, many
online books by Agatha Christie to read and much more.
