As we all typically look back over the year coming to an end, I’ve been recalling some of the memorable news to come out of the mystery genre in 2014.
Most recently was the loss of one of the mystery genre’s most popular authors, P.D. James. She passed away on November 27 at the age of 94. Known as the “queen of crime”, Baroness James was the creator of her much-loved protagonist, Adam Dalgliesh, the introspective Scotland Yard detective and published poet who functions as the hero of virtually all of her novels.
