Captivating murder mystery set in Northern England
STRANGE LITTLE GIRL: British Detective John Blizzard Returns - John Dean

Despite touching on quite a grim topic, this is a well-paced and enjoyable read. Blizzard is the kind of detective I like: he has a heart but keeps it close to his chest (ahem). He sees an opportunity to solve a crime that has troubled him for years, but that takes him into dangerous waters. The victims are mostly dead and buried, but the perpetrators are going to feel the long arm of the law.

Der Seidenspinner: Roman - Robert Galbraith

Can you imagine that Agatha Christie's Poirot like Cormoran Strike here sleeps with Pop Stars. They both are fat too, by the way. Modern times you will say. Maybe. But I think Christie knew that too and nevertheless (mark it) compensated the lack of "modernization" in her books by carefully manipulation of the psychological treats of her characters. By giving them "biblical devilishness or goodness".

 

I'm old fashioned in detectives, so 3 of 5.

Ein Schritt ins Leere - Agatha Christie,Otto Alfred von Bebber

Ich liebe die Bücher Christies, ich habe vor in ein paar nächsten Jahren ihrer aller Bücher vollständig zu lesen. 
In diesem handelt es sich nicht um Poirot oder ms Marple, aber die Geschichte ist spannend.
Zuerst am Anfang mochte man glauben, er wisse bereits über den Mörder Bescheid, aber man wird sich gewiss täuschen. Der Mörder tritt sich auf, als ein gewöhnlicher Mensch, in dem niemand einen Verdacht schöpft.

truly gripping
TO DIE ALONE: A Gripping British Detective Murder Mystery - John Dean

Excellent third book in the series. Can't wait for more.

 

In this book you are led up a blind alley, thinking you know who the murderer is. But only the brightest readers will guess the true killer.

 

Excellent read.

mysterious mystery
Duplicity - Pete Brassett

The fourth book by Brassett to feature detectives Munro and West, and just as good if not better than the previous ones.
Set in Scotland, the strong brogue of DI Munro contrasts well with the sassy southern attitude of DS West. Battling the rambunctious locals and their insatiable appetite for cholestrol laden fare, the two detectives must suss out the identity of a murderer, and find out the motive - whether a crime of passion, a business deal gone wrong, or perhaps both.
Try this book out, and find a whole new series to absorb oneself in
