From Agatha Christie to Gillian Flynn: 50 great thrillers by women | Books | The GuardianBest not mentioned, as I miserably failed in my efforts to complete it. You can find each of the books listed above on our shelves and via bookpeople. I miss seeing Louise Penny on this list. She is a wonderful author and creates characters that have depth to them. I think the list is great and even though I have read some, it begs me to revisit ones I read years ago. I am a huge mystery fan and neither of these books really filled the bill for me. Thank you for creating this and giving a brief summary of each one.
