Agatha Christie, Ellis Peters (Cadfael), Lindsey Davis (Falco novels) and a few others I'll get round to eventually...

Lord, Sue Grafton is my absolute favorite mystery author of all time! Her Kinsey Millhone series is an art form. Agatha Christie is great too, though not my favorite . . . and I like Carolyn Keene, psuedonym for the author of the Nancy Drew novels. Though they've kind of become kids books, I really love Nancy Drew.

I'd like to add my favourite mystery writers Harlan Coben, Mark Billingham, and Giles Blunt to the list. Harlan Coben is my absolute favourite. His books are just filled with twists and turns right up to the last page!

Wheel of Fortune

As typical as it would be expected, my favourites are Mr. Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mr. P.D. James and Ms. Agatha Christie. If I were to speak outside of the mystery genre, William Nicholson and Darren Shan would be added to my list.

Im new to mystery storys but Agatha Christie is undoubtedly my favourite mystery author

Some people think Doyle is old fashioned. No violent action or romance. Except when Holmes fell off the cliff with Moriarty (and he really did fall and die). And of course "The woman." Seriously that case was obvious. You knew the only reason he couldn't solve it was because she was a woman and he couldn't accept a woman could be cunning and evil.

I prefer female authors for female detectives: Margaret Maron for Sigrid Harald and Deb Knott. Laurie King for Mary Russell; Bujold for Cordelia Vorkosigan and Lady Alice Vorpatril; --I just noticed: these authors also do excellent male characters.
