In case you wondered …

… The Top Mystery Novels Ever Written. (Hat tip, Jon Caroulis.)

  1. This strikes me a mixture of mystery, espionage, and crime fiction. And The Eye of the Needle? I set it down to laugh when I found a sentence giving "Fahneneid" as "the blood oath of a German officer": it is the oath on the colors.

    As for Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, it purports to be non-fiction, and there is never any question of who shot whom, just under what exact circumstances. It is not really satisfactory as non-fiction either: the narrator is in on a few too many remarkable coincidences.
