Ayo Onatade, who I met through Mystery Women in the U.K., a sisterly relation to Sisters in Crime, passed this fun idea on to me.

List 10 mysteries you’ve read that will always stick with you. Don't take too long to think about it. List the first 10 you can recall in no more than 10 minutes.

I’ll start …
