  Book Lists - Books for Adults - Gentle Reads - Mysteries

These mysteries have little explicit sex or violence, however since they are mysteries they do involve a dead body. When you look at this list you will notice that Agatha Christie is not on the list, since she is one of the most famous mystery writers of gentle mysteries we felt this would be redundant.

Only one title is highlighted for each author/series in this bibliography. Other novels by the authors are available at the library.
