For the past few years, I've posted a list of May Day Mysteries, and I'm updating the entries here. I love May Day with its Morris Dancing and Maypole. And, although the 'merry month' of May may seem
idyllic with its flowers and warm showers, it can actually be murderous!
Later this month, I will also have an updated list of Mother's Day mysteries which, of course, takes place in May.
I include a few other May mysteries in the list below,
not just May Day Mysteries.
But the expanded list in this post focuses on Morris Dancing in Crime Fiction. There have also been Morris Dancers on Midsomer Murders.
