From my list on whodumurder mysteries that will keep you guessing.
Who am I?
I'm the author of The Lake Pines Mystery Series, as well as a multi-genre-inspired reader and writer. The story is what motivates my interest and captivates my attention. From my early fascination with Nancy Drew that drove me straight into my love of Agatha Christie, I'm passionately drawn to the traditional whodunnit murder mystery genre. I love creating red herrings and revel in the ‘ah-ha’ moments that give the reader pause and enjoyment. As a writer, I wanted to bring stories to life – to entertain and inform. Through murder mysteries I hope to give readers of this genre the satisfaction of a good ending, layered characters, and a good whodunnit.
L.L.'s book list on whodumurder mysteries that will keep you guessing
Why did L.L. love this book?
Ann Cleeves is the author whose writing I feel most closely resembles a modern mystery whodunnit. The story opens and a crime is revealed, and I was immediately pulled into Shetland. Drawn into the atmosphere of the island and the lives of the locals. In Raven Black, readers are challenged to not only uncover the motive of the crime, but they are faced with the reality of prejudices and how they can point the finger of guilt unjustly. A quiet island, once comfortable in their community, suddenly is set uneasy when they realize that a killer is living among them. As the people of Shetland rush to focus their attention on one man, it is only through the impartial perseverance of detective Jimmy Perez that the truth is finally revealed.
