Mystery Showcase 2017Our annual Mystery Showcase means it’s Mystery Month here on The Booklist Reader. The issue itself brings a thrilling trio of mysterious lists: the year’s best crime novels, the year’s best crime fiction for youth, and the year’s best crime fiction on audio. Julia Smith provides a core collection of middle-grade mystery novels in which creepy houses feature prominently. Joyce Saricks explores the world of Celtic noir on audio. Rebecca Vnuk alerts us to the trend of suburban romantic suspense. Neil Hollands explains how to lead readers mid-list mystery titles, and Bill Ott waxes rhapsodic about the Bangkok novels of John Burdett. Meanwhile, #50YearsofYA continues with guest speaker Maggie Stiefvater writing about magic.
