Old (Testament) School Murder Mysteries
I am a total old-school Mystery freak, and when I heard Anne Perry had a collection of fantastic whodunits based on stories from the old testament, I jumped on it.
One thing you can say for the Bible is it is an age-old fount of the lurid mystery going back to the first recorded murder.
Here we have stories from first-rate writers such as Simon Brett, Sharyn McCrumb, Peter Robinson, Nancy Pickard, and Anne Perry herself. They’re full of arch twists on biblical stories, Moses in Slavery-era America, John the Baptist in the mob, and always, always entertaining.
Tavia Gilbert, Eric Pollins, and Aaron Abano keep the suspense tight--even when you’ve already heard the story—long ago in Sunday school.
