Classic Crime Crime Month

Classic Crime

You can't go wrong with a classic!

The origins of crime fiction can be found in Gothic mysteries like those written by Edgar Allan Poe and Wilkie Collins. And then there is the book that might arguably be the greatest of all murder stories - Fyodor Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment.

From Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and Dorothy L. Sayer's Strong Poison, these are the classic crime novels that helped shape the genre.

Historical Mysteries Crime Month

Historical Mysteries

These days, most murder cases are solved using forensic science. But before DNA testing was invented, people had to rely on their wits (and their magnifying glasses) in order to figure out 'whodunnit'.

A good historical mystery can take you to any time or place. Fancy an old fashioned murder mystery set in Victorian England? Or maybe you'd prefer to catch a killer in ye olde medieval times? Wherever and whenever you want to fight crime, this great collection of Historical Mysteries can take you there! Select from P.D. James, Kerry Greenwood, Tom Keneally, Jeffrey Archer and C.J. Sansom.
