    A murder mystery with a twist.

    Such a Long Journey, by Rohinton Mistry. Governor General's Award 1991.

    The Inheritance of Loss, by Kiran Desai. Booker Prize 2006.

    "The Name of the Rose" in 1980 by Umberto Eco (Piedmont 1932). The first novel by Italian author Umberto Eco. It is a historical murder mystery set in an Italian monastery in the year 1327, an intellectual mystery combining semiotics in fiction, biblical analysis, medieval studies and literary theory.

    The book: The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley (No. 1 in the Flavia de Luce series) The hook: A precocious, chemistry-obsessed 11-year-old girl attempts to solve a murder in this charming mystery set in the English countryside. Fear factor: It's a very light, humor-filled murder mystery. No need to hide under the covers for this one.

    Love this! The last 20years of Man Booker prize winners arranged on a bookcase! So hard to pick a favourite!

    Anne Perry and the Murder of the Century. Fairly decent reporting of the facts, though slightly biased against Anne Perry. On June 22, 1954, teenage friends Juliet Hulme--better known as bestselling mystery writer Anne Perry--and Pauline Parker went for a walk in a New Zealand park with Pauline's mother, Honora. Half an hour later, the girls returned alone, claiming that Pauline's mother had had an accident.

    I've already got 5 down; only 16 to go! My favorite modern murder mysteries, crime dramas, and psychological thrillers!

    The Stranger, by Albert Camus. Nobel Prize in Literature 1957.

    This year it won the England's Man Booker Prize and instantly swept on the best-sellers lists. Our advice: After page 70, be prepared to cancel the rest of your life—there is no stopping 'til the end. #awardwinningbooks
