Top 5 Wednesday: Hidden Gems in Your Favorite Genre.

 Genre of choice: Mystery
I love mystery novels. ‘The Adventure of the Speckled Band’ was my first proper introduction to the genre. It was part of a short story collection assign at school. Both amateur and professional sleuths interest me, but Holmes will always be my favourite.


Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz (Sherlock Holmes #2)

The sequel to ‘The House of Silk’. A Sherlock Homes novel set in the time between The Final Problem and The Empty House. Inspector Athelney Jones and Frederick Chase, a Pinkerton, are on the hunt for Moriarty’s sinister successor.


The Yard by Alex Grecian (Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad #1)

The Murder Squad was set up because of Jack the Ripper. Walter Day has to investigate the murder of another detective. A must read if you like the BBC’s Ripper Street.


Johannes Cabal the Detective by Jonathan L. Howard (Johannes Cabal #2)

Johannes Cabal, a necromancer, finds himself on a passenger dirigible with a locked room murder mystery. He needs to hide his true identity while setting his scientific mind to the problem. It’s a fantasy novel crossed-genre with mystery.


The Haunted Bookshop by Christopher Morley

A bookshop, a romance and a mystery. No ghosts.


A Caribbean Mystery by Agatha Christie (Miss Marple, #10)

Miss Jane Marple goes on vacation on a Caribbean island. Murder ensues. This and “At Bertram’s Hotel’ is my two favourite Miss Marple books.
