Pam, from whom I mooched a Donna Leon mystery the other day, reminded me of this wonderful web site for mystery lovers. You can look up books by author's name, character name, awards won, setting of the story, job of the detective, period when the story takes place, and more.
My favorite is the "If you liked . . . then you'll love . . ." feature. If you like Agatha Christie (I do), you might like John Buxton Hilton. Or Nancy Pickard. Or Sara Woods. Or Margaret Yorke.
Go take a look. And thanks, Pam.
