Reading mystery novels and short stories were my passion once. Finding books of Agatha Christie at the bookshelves, in the small book stalls that you can see in railway stations across India, was my first choice when I reached the crowded railway stations in India.
It was my way, in the past, to kill time during the long train journey in India in my yearly vacations. I admit I could not read lots of the mystery books due to the non availability in my localities or the high price tag. But now the things have a changed a lot.
Now you can find tons of e-books online to read. Also order your choice of book online, thanks to the wide reach of internet connectivity and technological advancements.
Among the books the I read, I liked the “The Jewel of Seven Stars” by Bram Stoker a lot. There are numerous number of crime thrillers from talented authors out there to read. Many of the best sellers in this category are yet to come to my hand.
