What are your favorite Murder Mystery books?
I am a huge fan of Mary Higgins Clark and Agatha Christie, but are their any other brilliant mystery writers that you guys adore and recommend?
I enjoy the work of some of the past writers like the writers of the Campion mysteries (Margery Allingham, her husband, and a neighbor [Mike Ripley] after the couple died); and Patricia Moyes for "Dead Men Don't Ski" and "Johnny Underground."
Dorothy L. Sayers's novel "Murder Must Advertise" has her wealthy detective working successfully in an ad agency to solve a crime. It is a fantastically good time.
I enjoy all the Hercule Poirot mysteries, the John Creasey "Toff" series, and Rex Stout novels.
Many of Lillian Jackson Braun's "Cat Who ..." novels were good until the last couple in which she had trouble writing because of COPD.
Michael Bond wrote the enjoyable comedy-mysteries of Monsieur Pamplemousse. (Bond famously authored the Paddington Bear stories.)
I do like some more modern mystery writers, especially Sue Grafton, Carolyn Wheat, and M. J. Trow for his comedy-mysteries about Inspector Lestrade.
Sherlock holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Byomkesh Bakshi by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay are my favourites.
JA Jance,Sue Grafton, Michael Connley, Tony Hillerman. Enjoy!
Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett are my favorites, and I'll recommend them to anyone.
Undoubtedly Agatha Christie, Dumb Witness and Death o the Neil being my favourites.

Agatha Christie remains my number one favorite - she is the first mystery writer I ever read, when I was 14 years old or so. And her play The Mousetrap was the first play I ever saw, too.Other favorite authors are ... Elizabeth Peters, Charlotte Macleod and Simon Brett.
