Q:On a recent program, Krista mentioned her love of British mysteries. Any recommendations?
Hey there, Anon!
I shepherded your request across that vast expanse of 10 feet of hallway (electronically, mind you) to Ms. Tippett. And in typical, punctual fashion, Krista responded:
"I love the classics: Ruth Rendell and Barbara Vine (her alter ego), P.D. James. I also love a few others who aren’t so well-known in the U.S. — everything Robert Goddard has written; Susan Hill’s Inspector Serraillier novels; Morag Joss (Half Broken Things is brilliant).
Tana French has now been discovered. I’m forgetting someone but that’s a good start!”
