Top Ten Mystery Authors
by Cathy Perkins
This was a tough list to create! Mysteries span the spectrum from horror/thriller to sweet cozy—and I read all of them!
1.) Daphne du Maurier – my first “romantic suspense”Barbara Parker – wonderfully passionate (for her case, her cause or her man) suspense author who died too young
2.) Frederick Forsyth – Day of the Jackal made me pull for the assassin
3.) Janet Evanovich – she set the standard for the intensely funny, first person amateur sleuth
4.) Tony Hillerman – amazing sense of place and culture
5.) Barbara Parker – wonderfully passionate (for her case, her cause or her man) suspense author who died too young
6.) William Kent Krueger – his beautifully drawn settings are a character in the story
7.) Toni McGee Causey – she grabbed funny and took it on a rocket ride
8.) Ridley Pearson Wonderful ensemble cast – only guy I know who can turn handing off a ring of keys a two-page heart-stopping suspenseful scene.
9.) Margaret Maron – smart—book and people smart—amateur sleuth series set in North Carolina includes Deborah Knott’s extended family
10.) Jonathan King – deeply introspective; another author who beautifully uses settings

When Holly Price trips over a friend’s dead body while hiking, her life suddenly takes a nosedive into a world of intrigue and danger. The verdict is murder—and Holly is the prime suspect.
Of course, the fact that the infinitely sexy—and very pissed off—cop threatening to arrest her is JC Dimitrak, who just happens to be Holly’s jilted ex-fiancé, doesn’t help matters.
To protect her future, her business…and her heart…the intrepid forensic accountant must use all her considerable investigative skills to follow the money through an intricate web of shadow companies, and stay one step ahead of her ex-fiancé to solve the case. Before the real killer decides CPA stands for Certified Pain in the Ass…and the next dead body found beside the river is Holly’s.

I’d have a hard time listing only 10 authors! I am a fan of Toni McGee Causey too and I would have to add Lori Armstrong to that list. Thanks for the blog. Great to add an author new to me to my tbr list.
Thanks for the giveaway. The blurb sounds interesting. I’ll have to read the book sometime.
Sounds like an awesome read. I don’t read murder intrigue very much, but I think I’d read this.
