Catherine Aird Books In Order

Catherine Aird (website) is the pseudonym for the author Kinn Hamilton McIntosh. Born in 1930 in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, she is a British crime fiction writer best known for her Inspector Sloan mystery series, which she calls “The Chronicles Of Calleshire”, which is the place where detective Sloan and his partner, Constable Crosby, investigate murder after murder in each book.

I found that it is worth reading the Catherine Aird books in order for her inspector Sloan series as they have a great character development and interaction from book to book, although reading them out of order is not a major issue either, as each book focuses on a specific case.

I have read them years ago so my memory of the books is a bit fuzzy, but I do remember enjoying the post-WWII traditional crime mystery stories at the time when reading them from my mom’s shelf.

Here are the books by Catherine Aird listed in publication order, with the chronological order listed in brackets both are actually the same in this case).
