Mostly British Mystery Writers

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic For those of us who enjoy mysteries, especially ones written by British authors, this study group should prove to be a treat. This study group will feature not only true British/Scottish writers, but also an American and a South African writer. We also cover a time span from 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Our writers capture the soul of the characters and give us a glimpse into life during both trying and happy times. The books we will read and discuss are:  Case Histories by Kate Atkinson (Little Brown and Company Reprint, 2007); Marion Lane and the Midnight Murder by T. A. Wilberg (Park Row Books, 2020); Laidlaw by William McIlvanney (Europa Editions Reprint, 2014); Death at La Fenice by Donna Leon (HarperTorch, 1994); The Killings at Badger’s Drift by Caroline Graham (Felony and Mayhem Press, 1987); and The Notting Hill Mystery by Charles Felix (The British Library Publishing Division Reprint, 2010). All books are available in hardcover, paperback, audio and kindle versions. Any version is acceptable.
