Challenge Link-Up Post: Classic Crime


Please link your reviews for your Classic crime story (fiction or non-fiction) here.  This is only for the Classic Crime category.  This can be a true crime story, mystery, detective novel, spy novel, etc., as long as a crime is an integral part of the story and it was published at least 50 years ago. 
   
If you do not have a blog, or somewhere public on the internet where you post book reviews, please write your mini-review/thoughts in the comments section.  If you like, you can include the name of your blog and/or the title of the book in your link, like this: "Karen K. @ Books and Chocolate (In Cold Blood)."

  2. Hi! I'm sorry I entered twice... it was the wrong link, and I couldn't figure how to change it. Please delete the wrong one! Thank you.
    Anyway, the book I finished was The French Powder Mystery by Ellery Queen, and my review is on Goodreads. Happy reading! Claudia

  5. I read The Red House Mystery by A. A. Milne. Thought it was pretty good.
    (What does it mean "must have a strong romantic element to the story"?)

    1. Sorry! That was leftover from last year's link to a romance (I just cut and pasted the introduction). Ooops! I've corrected it now. No romance necessary in the crime classic!

  6. I read Murder on the Orient Express and loved it. My first Agatha Christie!

  7. I read "The Seven Dials Mystery", an early work by Agatha Christie. It's sort of a cross between P. G. Wodehouse and Miss Marple. A bit odd, but enjoyable.

  8. The Crime at Black Dudley is the first Margery Allingham book I have read. I was expecting Albert Campion to be the protagonist and while he isn't you can see why he became the main character of the series because there are so many secrets about him to uncover.

  9. I've finally started reading the Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries in order! Unnatural Death is a good beginning for the series.

  11. I read Truman Capote's In Cold Blood. Such a well-written account of the truly horrifying mass murder of an entire family in 1959.

  12. The Man Who was Thursday - fascinating and profound, but still Wow! Much I don't understand.
