    mystery recommendations?

    I've been a big Agatha Christie fan since I was 12. For some reason, I love reading her books when I'm sick in bed. I've read many of them. Then I made the mistake of reading "By the Pricking Of My Thumbs" -- disturbing. Haven't picked up a Christie novel since. Any suggestions as to other mystery authors (non-gory)?

    Hmmm. Maybe Gaston Leroux's The Phantom Of The Opera. Style is sort of borrowed from mystery books of that time, but this one is classic.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I haven't read it, although I'm somewhat familiar with the story (thanks to Andrew Lloyd Weber) I'll check it out.

    He also wrote The Mystery Of The Yellow Room, which is sort of famous for its plot scheme The Phantom Of The Opera was his best known work. It's plot slowly builds, but the story is beautifully sad and memorable, imho.
