If I really love Ruth Rendell and Agatha Christie, what else would I enjoy?

Just that really. I like both the Wexford books and the psychological thrillers like the Keys on the Street. Really struggling to find something. I don't like anything too gory though.

try P D James

Also, the Lord Peter Wimsey books by Dorothy L Sayers

Definitely PD James.

Another saying Elizabeth George. Val McDermid?

Northernlurker Thu 29-Dec-16 23:05:11

Val mcdermids brannigan books are fine but the later stuff is usually gory.

Margery Allingham

And you might like Lindsay Davis if you can cope with a roman setting.

On the lighter side, M C Beaton (Agatha Raison, Hamish MacBeth) and Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple series.

RustyPaperclip Thu 29-Dec-16 23:14:28

I would highly recommend Susan Hill and Anne Perry. Possibly Paul Docherty

MindTheGarp Thu 29-Dec-16 23:14:56

Kate Atkinson

Rachel Abbott. I am currently reading Kill me Again and really enjoying it.

cdtaylornats Fri 30-Dec-16 08:36:02

Edward Marston Railway Detective Series
Elly Griffiths Ruth Galloway series

Another vote here for PD James, Margery Allingham, Lindsay Davis, Donna Leon, and I also like Jill Paton Walsh, the Imogen Quy books, plus her contributions to the Peter Wimsey books. Obviously Dorothy Sayers as well. The Scandinavian Noir stuff is good as well.

PD James
Ian Rankin

Pancakeflipper Fri 30-Dec-16 19:17:43

The Simon Serrailer series by Susan Hill.

Agree with PDJames. A murderous joy to read.
Also the Robert Galbraithe ones (JK Rowling in disguise)

The shardlake chronicles
Brilliant, easy to read but well written, interesting and not too horrible
