Mystery Readers' Resources
Where can a mystery reader go to find answers to questions, such as "What title is next in the Maisie Dobbs mystery series? Who writes the mysteries featuring the character Jack Daniels? Does my favorite author have a new mystery coming out soon? What authors write police procedurals?"
There are a number of print and online resources that can answer these questions, as well as many others about the mystery genre. One of my favorites is Stop, You're Killing Me! (http://www.stopyourekillingme.com) This website provides a wealth of information about mysteries, authors, series, and read-alikes. The main search is by author or character and provides a link to the author's website (if available), a brief description of the series the author writes, and then lists the titles in chronological order. There are also great links on the left side of the page - mysteries by location, occupation, historical time period, genres, read-alikes, etc.
