Mystery Corner

Welcome to my Mystery Corner. Here, you’ll find the novels I’ve read, with updates every week. These novels are invariably in the Mystery-Thriller-Suspense genre and usually are part of a regular series with a recurring protagonist. You can always return here as a reminder of a book or author I’ve mentioned, to find a great escape from the demands of the business day or as a handy reference for books you want to read. Browse my selections below.
