Well, I just finished The Cold Light of Mourning by Elizabeth Duncan, and I really liked that, and I just finished Charlotte MacLeod's book The Family Vault, and that0 was VERY good. Still LIfe by Louise Penny runs neck and neck with MacLeod's The Family Vault as favorite mysteries. Duncan brings up the rear. For now. 8-)

This was the first Agatha Christie I read and I figured it out, in my teens.

My favorites.... Everything by Ross MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett and Dorothy Sayers. Those are the three that make up the top tier. A recent read that I enjoyed very much and recommend to anyone who will listen is The Lock Artist by Steve Hamilton.

RE: Katzenbach's The Analyst. I agree with Natalia! That book led me to look up and read every book I could find written by Katzenbach. That was quite a while ago, thank you for reminding me of him.

Hi, Re the best after "The Analyst"..That is a hard question. I can remember parts of some stories, but to try and put titles on them I couldn't. I remember some titles, "The Madman"s Tale" "The Traveller"...It really has been a long time since I read them. I know I read "The Analyst" twice just because I enjoyed the twists of it. I'm sorry to say the only book of his I didn't care for was his most famous, I think, "Hart's War", but that was just because it wasn't my style. Maybe I should try it again.
