Martin's Links



On the subject of great internet search sites, Stop You’re Killing Me may be the most essential for mystery fans. Here in the store we use it quite a bit. Not only can you search by author, or character name, but the job of the protagonist, when or where the story takes place, and a host of other search options. No matter what you are looking for, if its mystery related, you’ll find it here. Stop You’re Killing Me also lists the titles in the order of the series, which is a huge help.
