I post a list of mysteries every year for Father's Day and thought I'd update the post today. Last year I also posted about my father, Joseph Rudolph. My father passed away several years ago, but I think about him every day. He encouraged and supported me throughout my varying careers and educational pursuits, and he always told me I could accomplish anything and succeed in whatever I tried.
One thing we shared in common was our love of mysteries. Over the years my taste in mysteries has changed. I read more hardboiled, dark mysteries now as he always did. So many times I finish a book and say to myself, "I have to send this to Dad. He'll love it." My father engendered a love of mysteries in me through his collection of mystery novels and Ellery Queen Magazines. Here's to you, Dad, on Father's Day!
