I have read many outstanding mysteries in my long voracious reading history. Just read (i.e. inhaled) The 7th Woman (Nico Sirsky, Chief of Police), lent it to a friend who also devoured it within a matter of hours, so I 've been recommending it promiscuously all over the place. One of my all time favorites is Every Dead Thing by John Connolly. Neither of these is for those sensitive to graphic scenes. "Every Dead Thing " kept me up all night!

I love the Charlie Parker series by John Connolly. His battle against real and metaphysical villains is always great reading but I agree it is not for everyone. Every Dead Thing excellent.

Mine is probably either The Judas Child by O'Connell or When Demons Walk (Sianim) by Patricia Briggs. The second is a fantasy/mystery. Loved that book. Love the way the plot came together. The O'Connell one was a thriller. Just an emotional and scary and fantastic read.

Going simple and old school, I really enjoy Perry Mason mysteries.

I love Inspector Gamache and the Louise Penny books!

I've fallen behind on my reading but I thought The Brutal Telling was the most fabulous read. Louise was in town for an event and signed a copy for me.

Curtain: Poirot's Last Case by Agatha Christie.
It has the greatest twist ending ever written!

For noir with contemporary appeal, twists, and suspense, I'd go for Good Morning, Darkness. An edgy classic.

The Black Dahlia

Strange and convoluted. I've not read a book like it.

Can't pick just one. So many great ones out there.

Rather then name a single book I'm going to nominate Dave Robicheaux series by James Lee Burke. His characters are always complex, he nails Louisiana and Montana and you see Robicheaux struggle with his inner demons as loved ones pass, as he remarries and as his adopted daughter grows into a woman.
