Best Mysteries of the Century

 As indie booksellers, Kathy Harig and her late partner Paige Rose were asked to list their favorite mysteries of the last century from 1900 - 1999. Many are no longer in print. I have attached the list for reference purposes. If you see something on the list you want to track down, just send an email to info@mysterylovescompany.com What are your favorite mysteries?
