Henning Mankell is a Swedish writer. The detective he writes aboutis Kurt Wallender. You may have seen programs on PBS. They're very good.

Elizabeth George writes a series about a Detective Lynly (sp?). They're very good, too.

I enjoyed the books by Karin Slaughter- but the forensic part of them is pretty graphic, FYI.

James Patterson's Alex Cross series, Robert Tanenbaum writes a series that is very good. Patricia Cornwell, also.

Kathy Reich's series about Tempe Brennan are good. They're the books the tv show Bones is very loosely based on. I enjoy the show whenever I watch it, but I like the character as written in the book a whole lot more.

No right thinking human being should go through life without reading the Amelia Peabody mysteries. If you read those, you will feel compelled to send me a largish check in thanks, but it's okay, you don't have to, just spread the word.

The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz, I think there are only four of them so far.

They are funny/detective, if you like Janet Evanovitch, I think you will like these.

ETA: Another very light read are the Hannah Swenson mysteries by Joanna Fluke, a bit corny but each book also contains cookie recipes

Anne Perry has two different series that are really good. Her novels are set in Victorian England. One series is about a police inspector Thomas Pitt and the other is about William Monk.

Skye, what I find most interesting about the Amelia Peabody series is that you have three men in there who are *so* magnificent that the *snarky roguish bastard* would be "kill" in a game of FMK. In any other series he would not be kill. He'd probably be fuck. But no, in this series, it's Marry Emerson, Fuck Ramses, Kill Sethos.

I know just what you mean. I usually listen to the Peabody books on CD's. The reader is phenomenal. She has an English accent and when she takes on the role of Peabody, you get a truly good picture of her. If you haven't heard them, try to get hold of one. You'll love it.

Thanks everyone. I won't be at a loss for a good book for a long time!

Skye - I am an audiobook junkie. I'm in my car for several hours a day and go crazy if there's not a book in my CD player to be listening to. I'm looking forward to the Peabody books.

Grace, another wonderful series to listen to is Alexander McCall Smith's "The Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency." They take place in Botswana. Again, the reader is wonderful. Enjoy.

How does she do with Emerson and his great bellow? And Ramses with all his mystery.

Ramses Emerson is my single favorite male character in all literature.

One thing I love the most about the series is that Amelia is the most delightfully constructed of all unreliable narrators. She is a *dreadful* mother. She *thinks* she knows Whodunnit, but she never does. She *thinks* she's brilliant at seeing romantic relationships forming and frequently announces that and that Emerson cannot see these things at all. But who knew about Ramses and Nefret? Emerson did.

ladyv. she does Emerson very well. Our discussing this is sending me to my library to find another of her books on CD. Again, I highly recommend you listen to one, even one you've read before, because they are so delicious.

I have to second The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I have read more than one of those more than 2 or 3 times.

Patricia Cornwell has a series of crime books based on her character, Kay Scarpetta. Always a good read (in my opinion).
