Crime Fiction Alphabet 2012 – summary

Kerrie’s Crime Fiction Alphabet came to the end last week. This is the third time I’ve taken part and as before I thoroughly enjoyed taking part. Thanks, Kerrie.

The rules of the meme are that you have to write a blog post about crime fiction related to the letter of the week and your post MUST be related to either the first letter of a book’s title, the first letter of an author’s first name, or the first letter of the author’s surname.

I had very little difficulty in finding books to fit the rules and mainly read whatever I wanted and slotted them in wherever they would fit. The exception to that was, of course, that pesky letter X and I resorted to having a title that sounded as though it began with X.

Many were books by old favourites, such as Agatha Christie (3 books) and some by new-to-me authors, such as Dana Stabenow, Michael Innes, M R Hall, Chris Pavonne and Suzanne Young.

Here’s my list – a mixture of titles and authors’ names:

I rated most of the books between 3/5 to 4/5 with two at 5/5:

and The Chalk Circle Man by Fred Vargas at 4.5

  1. Margaret – You have such a nice mix of books here! And you’ve included some authors (e.g. Christie, Robinson, Brett and Cleeves) whose work I like very much. Thanks for this summing-up.


  2. A great list. Seeing all of them together reminds of several I want to follow up on. Fatherland and the series by Upson, Cleeves and Qiu Xiaolong. And more Agatha Christie.
