13 OF THE BEST MYSTERY NOVELS TO SPEND ALL DAY GETTING LOST IN

Some books sit on your bedside table or on a stack on your floor for weeks as you read a little bit each night. The mystery novels on this list are not those books. These are crime novels that will make you cancel plans and ignore your resolution to go to bed at a decent hour.
