My Favourite Crime/ Mystery/ Thriller Books
If you ask what my favourite genre is, with no hesitation I say crime. I like those twisted, mysterious stories which take me to a whole new level of reading. Those who are in love with crime, possibly know what I am trying to say. For those who are not that into crime, I say give it one chance and you will not regret it. SO here are some of my favourite crime stories of all time. I have not given a synopsis for these because I think the more unknown the book is it’s more compelling to read. Also these books are in no particular order. I just love them all so very much.
- Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I absolutely love these books. I started reading them when I was twelve years old and ever since I am die-hard fan of Holmes. You MUST read them. I’m not even suggesting, I am ordering you. Please just grab a SH book right now!
- Tell Me Your Dreams by Sidney Sheldon
This book made me speechless. The last bit of it left me mouth-gaped.
- Twelve Red-Herrings by Jeffery Archer
In this short story collection you will find twelve short stories: some are creepy enough to give you goosebumps while some hook you to the story until the very end.
- Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith
Tell me a time that this book is not on any of my lists. I’m obsessed with Cuckoo’s calling by Robert Galbraith aka J.K Rowling. I heard that the TV series to this book will be released soon. I can’t wait!! Again this is one of those books that the ending is unpredictable. I never expected that to happen.
- Whisper in the Dark by Robert Gregory Brown
This book is witty in its own way while giving you the best feeling of crime and suspense at the same time.
- Murder in the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
OMG! I don’t understand how someone can twist and turn a story like this. Just magnificent. Rated 5 stars.
- The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
Now I’m not quite sure whether this book falls under the category of crime but it has them all that I have mentioned in the title. This book is mind-blowing.
- Beach House by R.L.Stine
This author gave me nightmares when I was a kid. No Offence! But I love his books and this book is one of the very best.
- Nighttime is My time by Mary Higgins Clark
This book had me positively-fretting (yeah) because I wanted nothing but to finish it off soon and go for the end. It was that intriguing. Curiosity at its best I say.
- Murder Suicide by Keith Ablow
I don’t know exactly whether I liked the ending but this is a thought-provoking crime novel. Definitely recommend it to all my soon to be crime genre fans.
