Ann Arbor District Library Staff Picks Mysteries
The Staff Picks shelf is downtown on the first floor. There you will find what the mystery loving staff members of the Ann Arbor District Library are recommending this week:
The Golden Child by Penelope Fitzgerald "A classically plotted British mystery... leavened with a wicked sense of humor"---New York Times Book Review.
Stephen King called her "the next suspense superstar" and Meg Gardiner is still going strong five years later with The Dirty Secrets Club.
Chris Grabenstein, author and president of Mystery Writers of America--which bestows the Edgar Awards, also authors the Ceepak mysteries. Rolling Thunder is a good introduction to New Jersey’s straight arrow cop John Ceepak and his sidekick Danny Boyle.
"CSI meets the Canterbury Tales" is how one reviewer described the historical crime thriller Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin.
The UK’s Spectator Magazine describes author Arnaldur Indridason as "Once again Indridason demonstrates that the best Scandinavian crime writers can hold their own against their British and American rivals." Arctic Chill rounds out this week’s peek at StaffPicks mysteries.
