Chelsea Cain's 6 favorite detective stories

Chelsea Cain's novels featuring Detective Archie Sheridan include Heartsick, Sweetheart, Evil at Heart, and The Night Season.

For The Week magazine she named her six favorite detective stories.

One title on the list:
The Mermaids Singing by Val McDermid

This 1995 novel, set in the fictional English town of Bradfield, is the first of six books about criminal psychologist Tony Hill and Detective Inspector Carol Jordan. It is utterly compelling and über-perverted, and I mean that in the best possible way. Plus, it’s British. So automatically kind of fancy.
