Web Crush of the Week: Stop, You’re Killing Me!
Posted by: Rebecca Vnuk

2013_mystery-month-buttonI’ve mentioned this fabulous site before, but it remains my all-time favorite website for mystery readers’ advisory.

Stop You’re Killing Me: This mega-mystery site has put every mystery book properly in place  – you can search by author, title, character name, character profession, place,  time period, the list goes on.

Created by Bonny Brown and maintained by Lucinda Surber and Stan Ulrich, this is a site that we just can’t get enough of. About the only thing missing is a searchable index by color of the front cover.  (Come on, guys, get on that, will you??)

So when your patron comes to the desk looking for a mystery they read 10 years ago, featuring an Episcopal vicar from New Jersey, it will take you no time at all to point them to the Mother Lavinia Grey series by Kate Gallison.  And you will look BRILLIANT.
