Like these books


  1. I’m surprised you don’t list Peter Grainger’s books. In my opinion, one of the most interesting writer currently working in any genre. His police procedural, the “DI Smith” series that segued into his “Kings Lake Investigation” series is excellent.

    The audio book versions have a very talented reader, Gildart Jackson, throughout the entire series.

  2. I receive a weekly news release of Cozy Mystery books, which I do enjoy. What I would like to find is a news release on the Medieval Mystery book series. They are not considered as Cozy and I would like to know when new Medieval books are being released to the public.
    Thank you for any information you can give me.

  3. @Julie H Thanks for the mention, I’ve added Chris Culver’s latest book. I used to enjoy his Ash Rashid series, have yet to start reading this one.

  4. Another Feb. 1 release is ‘The Girl in the Woods’ by Chris Culver. It’s book #2 in the Joe Court series. (Culver also writes the excellent Ash Rashid series.)

  5. Nece, I’m not sure what you mean. Can you please clarify your question?

  6. Chris, because I have recently found my site’s content copied on several other (spammy) sites. I’m working hard to bring new quality content to the site only to have others steal it with one click of a button. Sure, they can still do it, but they’ll now have to work for the honor.

  7. Thanks for these, but I must ask: why are text selection and right-clicking disabled on this website?

  8. Hi there,

    I’ve recently uploaded an Ebook onto Amazon kindle, and was wondering if you’d be interested in reviewing it?

    Called ‘Blackspoon,’ it’s a pulp crime thriller about a young RAF officer who is coerced into smuggling heroin back from the war in Afghanistan.

    Thanks for your time,

    Best wishes,

    Dan Eagleton
