John Banville (Benjamin Black), Simenon, Kate Atkinson ... I wish there were more of them!

May I ask why? I don't read his stuff but I thought I'd be game and throw one in for you.

A really great 'mystery' is THE SHADOW OF THE WIND by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Yes I will plug this brilliant book till the end of time. It's one of the best I've read in a long time. This is crazy because I have a hard time getting into crime novels.

I don't think he's a mystery writer...
