Dame Agatha Christie
The Supreme Lady of the drawing room mystery. I own all of her novels and have read each of them many times.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Sherlock Holmes has no peer. Though not as frequently read as Christie, I also own all the Sherlock Holmes
stories. Doyle would no doubt be appalled, but I have all of the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce Sherlock Holmes
movies as well.
Ellery Queen-(Lee and Dannay)
Very light fare, but amusing.
Earl Derr Biggers-Charlie Chan
I love the philosophical asides in these novels.
Erle Stanley Gardner-Perry Mason
Wishful thinking...that a lawyer would be so interested in justice and his client. Maybe this belongs in the
Rex Stout-Nero Wolfe
There is nothing endearing about the obese and sedentary Nero Wolfe, and I find Archie a predictable nuisance at times, but the combination makes an entertaining read and I'm still in the process of collecting Rex Stout novels.
