Fall 2013 Mystery Readers List

Our mystery book group meets once a week in Berkeley. We've been meeting longer than any other mystery book group in the Bay Area. Quite a feat! And, every Tuesday from September through June, we read and discuss a book a week. Used to be two a week, but we've gotten older and slower?

So here's the list for anyone who wants to read along. It's a loose theme this session, starting with some nominated or award winning  crime fiction, and then taking a trip around the world! Enjoy. Post comments or send via email, if you read with us.

Thanks for posting these up. I would be interested to hear your thoughts on 'The Other Woman'. I have read some good reviews. If I may make a recommendation I would suggest 'The Gemini Factor' by Philip Fleishman. http://www.philipfleishmanmd.com/

A wonderfully written, murder mystery thriller with some very clever twists and a fascinating focus on telepathy between twins. A good detective will tell you that there is no such thing as coincidence and that couldn't ring more true here. Really great read all round. I hope you give it a chance.
