At Your Library: Do you like a good mystery?

If you love a good mystery novel, you’ve probably read all the “Poirots” and the “Miss Marples”, so here’s a few gems you might have missed or not picked off the shelf.

Remember too, the Cordova Public Library offers interlibrary loan services for books we may not have in our extensive collection, but we can ask to borrow from other libraries within the state of Alaska. There’s no cost to you, the patron, and we’re happy to learn what might be out there that we should add to our library shelves.

If you love Arthur Conan Doyle’s, “A Study in Scarlet”, or historical mysteries full of wit, astounding leaps of logic, and murder:

  • Dreaming Spies by Laurie R. King
  • Treachery at Lancaster Gate by Anne Perry
  • The Hippopotamus Pool by Elizabeth Peters
  • Seeing a Large Cat by Elizabeth Peters
  • Whiteout by Ken Follett

If you love Gillian Flynn’s, “Gone Girl”, or twisty psychological thrillers with potentially unreliable narrators:

  • Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen
  • Body Double by Tess Gerritsen
  • Hide by Lisa Gardner

If you love Dan Brown’s, “The Da Vinci Code”, or thrill rides full of riddles, baffling clues and menacing bad guys:
