Mystery Books — Free and Bargain Books!

Mystery fiction encompasses a broad spectrum of tastes and genres, from the ‘whodunnit’ with it’s puzzle-like structure, appealing to home sleuths and logical thinkers, to mystery books, in the ‘hardboiled’ category that provide much of the action and excitement of a thriller or suspense novel.

Whatever your preference, mystery books can always be relied upon to provide you with a crime, puzzle or some kind of problem to solve. They’re the ‘thinking person’s fiction: for those who don’t want to just sit back and be guided through their book by a trusted author – they want to take an active part. The mystery reader doesn’t take the author’s word for everything, they read between the lines, searching for what the author isn’t telling them and as suspicious as the book’s detective, that what they are being told may not be true. The mystery lover is not just a reader, they are a reading detective using their favorite novels as ‘cases’ to be investigated… ‘puzzles’ to be solved.

Whether you enjoy the leisurely pace of Agatha Christie’s gentlewoman sleuth Miss Marple, or the high adrenaline thrills and spills of Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer – or any number of variations in between. The Mystery novel takes energy, attentiveness, and a disciplined mind to fully enjoy. But the rewards of an intricately weaved mystery, slowly unraveled, are equal to their challenge!
