Detective novels recommendation!

Recommended Posts

The British Library has a huge selection of crime classics, most of which are contemporary with Agatha Christie, in paperback/on the Kindle.

I like the Troubled Blood book by Robert Galbraith. 

She makes one boo boo about a book bought by Robin, one minute posted to her, the next it was bought in a bookshop. 

Great read though.

I like the Inspector Gamache series written by Louise Penny. Gamache reminds me a bit of Poirot.

I always loved (and still do!) the Peter Diamond books, written by Peter Lovesey. Set in Bath, you really feel that you come to 'know; the burly figure as he goes about his investigations.

If you enjoy detective set in the early decades of 1900, then I can recommend Dorothy L Sayers Lord Peter Wimsey series. They are very much of their time, with class barriers, occupations and the formal education of women among other aspects well captured.
