The Best Authors of Crime Fiction?


AbeBooks: The Best Authors of Crime Fiction

A list from AbeBooks today of the best crime fiction authors. Allegedly. I can't believe such a list could include Gillian Flynn but not Ngaio Marsh, Margery Allingham or Patricia Wentworth. Or Hazel Holt. I recommend Malice Aforethought, BTW. It's worth following the link to see the book covers. I do love some of the old paperback covers, like this one.
