Very disappointing to someone who has read thousands on crime novels in my 70 years. Has nobody even read him? What about the Inspector Rutledge novels? But I am going to start taking your list into consideration — maybe I will prove myself wrong. Only read 5 but now can look out for others. I tend to stick to certain authors, but this list wll encourage me to try others.
MJ Arlidge and Michael Robotham are my favourites, always reliable. Pingback: The thrill of crime The National Rust. Look at a new author on Amazon Kindle Frank Kaye. Great list.
