Not all mysteries and whodunits are created equal. As far as my top suspense novel recommendations, I compiled this reading list of the classics in this genre.
- Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Canon Doyle
- Myriad short stories by Edgar Allen Poe
- And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. I love this authoress’ life of personal mystery.
- Miss Marple Series by Agatha Christie
- The Thirty-Nine Steps by John Buchan
- All Around the Town by Mary Higgins Clark
- The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
- Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
