You should try some of John Dickson Carr's novels, pretty much the definer of the locked room genre. I just finished reading The Three Coffins/The Hollow Man. Though not exactly that "super-exciting-thriller-suspense" flair that Christie has, the answers are much more satisfying and developed.

I read ~almost~ all of them. I think there's a thread about that series here.

Definitely a good read. Highly recommended if you're cool with sitting down with an amazing story for a couple hours.

Finished the Clash of Kings a couple days ago, it was much better than the first one - and that in turn was pretty damn good itself I can see why it became a successful anthology now, the way of writing just makes you care about every one of the characters who drive the plot, and some who were not explored as much before have a chance to shine in this book. Looking forward to #3.

Clementine by Cherie Priest -- a short read, but a good one. Any fan of steampunk can appreciate.

Finished Uncle Petros and Goldenbach's conjecture, a biography about a mathematician who aspired to solve said conjecture...pretty immersing, who would have thought that math could hide such mad worlds.

Just discovered Robert E. Howard's "The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane". "He was a strange blending of puritan and cavalier."

Easy to read and fun!

I have recently finished James Gillaspy's A Larger Universe.

It wasn't half bad for a YA science fiction novel.
I enjoyed it.

Finished Inheritance by Christopher Paolini. Well the problem of regulating magicians was kinda novel but otherwise it seemed like a pretty standard affair. Not that bad but not particularly great either imo.

Currently reading The 9/11 Wars by Jason Burke. Very insightful.
