Birthday Themed Crime Fiction: Happy Birthday to Me!

Today's my Birthday. Sorry you can't be with me to celebrate, but you can read one of these Birthday Themed Mysteries. Every year I get older, and the list gets longer. Raise a glass of champagne, eat a chocolate truffle, and grab a book, as you virtually join me Behind my Garden Gate! This is an updated list. Any titles missing?
