I recently got interested in the New Sherlock Holmes stories that are written in the last ten years or so. The idea of Sherlock Holmes trying to solve the Jack the Ripper serial murders was intriguing, and I became hooked on this type of mystery story. I'm looking for more great mystery stories and hope that others can give me an idea where to go from here.Smiley Happy

I also just finished where the crawdads sing and that was a great book! I wasn't sure I was gonna like it at first but it turned out to be a really good story.

I just finished Sharpe's Escape by Bernard Cornwell.  It's historical fiction, which I love.  Am now reading Dean Koontz's From the Corner of His Eye.  On audio I'm listening to The Egyptian and on my Kindle, The Road to Ruin which is about an Italian who fought with the German army and, now that the war is over, is on his way home.

Am reading John Ellsworth's  Thaddeus Murfee  legal, mystery series.  Easy reading on the Kindle Reader.  All from Amazon's Kindle Unlimited Books program.  It works well.
