Whodunnit Wednesday

This is a meme hosted here for mystery/thriller/crme reads.  If you would like to participate grab the picture and post a link to our post in the comments!

There is a lot of discussion about diversity and reading authors that are not white and male and although personally I am all about the book itself and not who wrote it or their identifying characteristics, I have found that I do read a great deal of female authors.  I believe that this is because the mystery/crime/detective fiction genre has such an extraordinary bounty of these talented females.  So with all that being said, how many of these female authors have you read?

Author – Sample Work

Agatha Christie – And Then There Were None

Margery Allingham – More Work for the Undertaker & The Tiger in the Smoke

Ngaio Marsh – Light Thickens & Overture to Death

Caroline Graham – The Killings at Badger’s Drift

Dorothy L. Sayers – The Nine Tailors

Elly Griffiths – The Crossing Places

S.J. Bolton – Sacrifice

Mo Hayder – Poppet

M.C. Beaton – The Quiche of Death

P.D. James – The Private Patient

Daphne Du Maurier – Rebecca

Tana French – In the Woods

Patricia Highsmith – The Talented Mr. Ripley

Camilla Lackberg – The Ice Princess

Margaret Millar – Beast in View

Mary Roberts Rinehart – The Circular Staircase

Donna Tartt – The Secret History
