If you are particularly keen on thrillers or on gripping detective stories, I strongly recommend Elizabeth George's novels. I rank her among the best writers of the genre. Not only does she write extremely well but she also reaches an emotional and psychological level deeper than most crime writers. If you're interested, you'd better start with her first novel entitled 'A Great Deliverance'. Trust me, you won't be disappointed !
Her plots are really brilliant !
Have a nice reading !

Bye!!!!

Hi Freeday !
Thanks for your information about this book.
Actually, I read simplified books, because my level is intermediate.
So I have a question : is it easy to read or not ?
What do you think about that ?

Hi Joy, nice to answer you again !

Actually, it might be difficult to read her novels in the first place because her vocabulary is rich and complex but it's really worth trying. It's a good way to learn new words, phrases and expressions. You'll be captivated by her plots and you'll soon forget the language barrier !
Bye Joy.

I like Elizabeth George too and PD James, Ruth Rendell, Martha Grimes ...
but I'm not capable of reading in English.
Actually, I read "English and and American short stories of today" is a bilingual book.

The easiest to read is probably A. Christie, because she is so 'classical'. But I like Elizabeth George too, and PD James, and Ruth Rendell, and Minette Walters, and Mary Higgins Clark ... but I don't know Martha Grimes yet. Could you tell us a bit more about her ?
Those ladies really have a gift!!

I've always been fond of mysteries and detective stories, so I will consider your recommendation.

Initially, my favorites were the Peter Wimsey novels by Dorothy Sayers. I like a puzzle that both challenges the mind and gives the reader a fair chance of solving it. Along these same lines are the "closed box" mysteries of John Dickson Carr, which are often brilliant. Sometimes Carr will present you with a situation and series of clues that are baffling, then will have his detective solve the problem in an elegant fashion, only to tear it down again and produce a completely different solution. Carr's "Arabian Nights Murder" is a masterpiece in this regard, and also delights the reader by presenting the events and timeline of the mystery from the viewpoints of different people.

Martha Grimes is a very interesting author. She wrote a lot of books : Dirty Duck, The Anodyne Necklace, The Old Silent ...
Her principal character is Richard Jury to Scotland Yard.
