Are you waiting for your copy of the new Sue Grafton?

The library's copies of Sue Grafton's latest Kinsey Millhone mystery, U is for Undertow, have arrived...and there's quite a hold list on copies of the book, the large print book, & the audiobook, so if you haven't put a hold on it yet, now's the time! While you're waiting you could relive Kinsey's past adventures by rereading the first 20 books, from A is for Alibi to T is for Trespass. But if you are looking to wile away your wait with a book not written by Sue Grafton but similar to her mysteries, may we suggest the following titles/series?

The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler

Edwin of the Iron Shoes by Marcia Muller

the Anna Pigeon mysteries by Nevada Barr, beginning with Track of the Cat

the Anna Lee mysteries by Liza Cody, beginning with Dupe

the V.I. Warshawski mysteries by Sara Paretsky, beginning with Indemnity Only

For more readalikes, check out this list by Bettendorf Public Library.

When I see a list of wonderful mysteries that I have enjoyed reading, and there is one on the list I haven't read yet -- of course I must read it! I look forward to reading "Dupe" by Liza Cody. Susan
