The Best Mysteries Await You

If you're a big fan of mystery books, you've come to the right place.

We aim to take the 'mystery' out of finding your next mystery read!


BestMysteryBooks.com is a community-driven recommendation website that aims to help you find the best mystery books, from cult classics, modern hits, to eclectic gems.


We combine the best of both worlds: curated mystery best lists written by passionate mystery fiction lovers and crowd-powered mystery book recommendations. As such, BestMysteryBooks.com has a good mystery read for practically everyone.

Where to Start?


Read our comprehensive 'Core" best lists which provide a detailed list of curated recommendations of the best. We've spent a great deal of time and effort creating specific mystery recommendations by specific categories. If you are new to the mystery genre, or simply looking for the 'best of the best', we do recommend you start with our "Top 25 Best Mystery Books' list. From there, if you want even more recommendations, check out our Top 100 Mystery Books which continues on from the Top 25 lists, starting from #26 and ending at #100.


And of course, there's specific recommendations by mystery subgenre.


If you are looking for a specific type of mystery read or you like a specific mystery subgenre, do check out our very detailed mystery subgenre guides. We break down exactly what the genre is, what defines it, what other subgenres are closely related to it, and we give specific mystery book recommendations that fit that subgenre!


Note: we are currently undergoing a complete website redesign that we've been working on for nearly a year. So bear with us -- some links and parts of the new website may not work for a few weeks!


We guarantee you won't leave our site without at least a couple good book recommendations.
