American Male Private Investigators

The Mysterious Mornings group met this morning and talked about their favorite mysteries starring American Male PIs. If it was mystery or thriller and it featured a main character that was male and employed as a private investigator, it fit this month’s subgenre.

Here are the group favorites listed by author and their series main character:

  • Belzer, Richard (Richard Belzer)
  • Chandler, Raymond (Philip Marlowe)
  • Coleman, Reed Farrel (Moe Prager)
  • Cussler, Clive (Isaac Bell)
  • Deutermann, P.T. (Cam Richter)
  • Gallison, Kate (Nick Magaracz)
  • Greenleaf, Stephen (John Marshall Tanner)
  • Lescroart, John (Wyatt Hunt)
  • Maleeny, Tim (Cape Weathers)
  • Mosley, Walter (Easy Rawlins)
  • Parker, Robert B. (Spenser)
  • Spiegelman, Peter (John March)
  • Spillane, Mickey (Mike Hammer)
  • Tierney, Ronald (Dietrich Shanahan)
  • Tremblay, Paul (Mark Genevich)
  • Vachss, Andrew H. (Burke)

Interesting in joining in on a Mysterious Morning discussion? A list of suggested authors and titles are available at the Bridgewater Library and books will be on display about a month prior to the discussion. (If you’re a voracious mystery reader you can read more than one.) Our next theme/subgenre is Dogs and Cats Solving Mysteries Together!

If it’s a mystery and it features a main character that is not human, then it fits this month’s sub-genre. Just keep in mind how main character’s species affects the unfolding of the mystery because that’ll be a major talking point at our discussion on Wednesday, May 18th at 9:30am at the Bridgewater Library.
