What's a good murder mystery to read on a wintry day?
I love stories with big houses and blizzard and there must be more than Agatha Christie's "Mouse Trap," which I have read.
Blood Harvest by S.J. Bolton.
Margaret Truman's Murder in the White House, Murder on Capitol Hill, Murder in the Supreme Court, Murder at the FBI, Murder in the Smithsonian, Nurder on Embassy Row, Murder at the Kennedy Center, Murder at the Pentagon, Murder in the House, Murder at the Library of Congress...
That's a lot of murder.
There's a small, 1966 collection of seven stories titled, TALES TO TREMBLE BY. It's edited by Stephen P. Sutton, for Western Publishing Company, Inc, Racine, Wisconsin. A Whitman Book.
Stories by de Maupassant, Dickens, Washington Irving, Bram Stoker, and others. 214 pgs.
Ice Blues by Richard Stevenson
Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu
It's not about finding the killer of course, but it's a Gothic pleasure.
Hunger, the inevitable and death are creeping out of their mystic places and emit their gloomy light over the souls and bodies of innocent young girls.
It's definitely good for a wintry day!
If anyone wants a bit of summer heat in their mysteries, read the Phryne Fisher series by Kerry Greenwood.
Set in Melbourne Australia in the late 1920s, they're a fun trip to a part of the Jazz Age you never knew about. And Phryne herself does like a hot man, which does fit in with the average Dataloungers tastes.
