And it’s a good thing too. What would life be without a good mystery to wile away the time?

Mystery Readers’ Roundtable (Sept-May)
2nd Tuesday @ 3pm
Mystery Readers Roundtable is in its eighth year and meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 3pm. Once a month, fans of the mystery genre gather over hot drinks and share their favorite crime novels and good company. Have a few laughs, investigate themes, and visit some very dark places. If this sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee) come and join the group. For more information call Linda at the library or email tplinfo@topshamlibrary.org.

Stop You’re Killing Me
Are you one of those people who just MUST read your mystery series in order? Then this is the place for you. On this site you will find all your favorite series listed in order by author and even by main character. You can search for mysteries by location, by job description, by genre, by time period, and more. It has book reviews too. Visit stopyourekillingme.com and check it out.

Linda’s Read-Alikes
This list is comprised of many of the authors read by the Roundtable and TPL staff member Linda Meadows, who facilitates the mystery group. Criteria include similar characteristics in one or more of the following areas: location, time period, tone, or theme.

Linda’s Top Mysteries
For the past six years the library staff has chosen their top 5 reads for each year. These stories are my top mysteries from those years. I highly recommend them.
