The Subject is Murder

BLOG:

The SUBJECT IS MURDER:

Today suppose you tell us how you like your murder served to you between the pages of a book, on the small screen or the big screen.
Is strangulation your cup of coffee? Is poison your cup of tea? What about a good old fashioned stabbing, maybe you like your murder to end with a souffle gone bad or does your taste of choice end with a big bang?
Here are some movies and books that satisfy my taste for murder.
1. WHOSE KILLING THE GREAT CHEFS OF EUROPE?
2. MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS
3. MIDNIGHT LACE
4. STRANGERS ON A TRAIN
5. ROPE
6. MURDER IS EASY
7. HOSTILE MAKEOVER
8. NOTORIOUS
9. PRESUMED INNOCENT
10. DEATH TRAP
11. The PELICAN BRIEF
12. SUSPECT
Now these are all good movies and I love the ones with a twist ending. Moving on to books here are a few that I thought had clever plots.
1. THREE BEDROOMS ONE CORPSE by Charlaine Harris.
2. FATAL FIXER UPPER by Sarah Graves
3. The BODY IN THE IVY by Katherine Hall Page
4. POISONED PINS by Joan Hess
5. CRY WOLF by Tami Hoag
6. THIS OLD MURDER by Valerie Wolzien
7. MURDER BETWEEN the COVERS by Elaine Viets
8. DEAD MAN'S ISLAND by Carolyn G. Hart
9. DEADLY VALENTINE by Carolyn Hart
10. NEEDLED TO DEATH by Maggie Sefton
I also really like culinary mysteries. You never know what will be served and they always have great recipes that you can try after satisfying your taste for murder. Nothing goes with murder like food except maybe a good bookstore mystery, a library mystery or an historical mystery. Needless to say when it comes to murder everyone's palette is different but it's great we can sample all types......

Until next time........
