BW35: September Crime Spree - Police Procedurals


Happy Sunday!  September is upon us and our newest crime spree category brought to us by Sandy and Amy is all about Police Procedurals. 

We love to watch Police Procedurals which is a genre popular not only in mystery books but also TV (for example… Law and Order has continuously been on since 1990). The genre lends itself well to series, which means fans will have plenty of books to read.

Authors to explore:

   Val McDermid – multiple great series

·         Ann Cleeves—Vera Stanhope is her classic detective

·         Tana French – Dublin Murder squad

·         Karin Slaughter – Will Trent is her best-known series

·         Ian Rankin – writes the long-running Inspector Rebus series

·         Peter Lovesey – multiple series but Peter Diamond is one of his most famous

·         Faye Kellerman – Sandy particularly recommends the Peter Decker series

 Challenge: Read a Police Procedural mystery and consider it “research.”
