Would Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell work for this category? It's not in the crime/detective genre, but a major part of the plot revolves around who commits a murder.ReplyDelete

I'm counting Dracula for this category--though it's not what we usually think of as a mystery/crime/detective story, it does have many elements of that genre. Who the Count is, what he's about, what has happened to Lucy are all mysteries to the other characters.. The Count does commit crimes. And the efforts to find him contain elements of a detective story.ReplyDelete
A Man Lay Dead, the first of many Roderick Alleyn novels, was a great first effort, but I'm glad I kept reading the series and found the rest much better.ReplyDelete
