Ten of the best traditional mysteries of 2019

CrimeReads named their ten best traditional mysteries of 2019. One title on the list:
Rachel Howzell Hall, They All Fall Down (Forge)

This is the first stand-alone from author of the Lou Norton series, Rachel Howzell Hall, who knows her genre just as well as she knows her city of Los Angeles. In Hall’s latest, seven strangers, each with their own peculiar secrets, find themselves imperiled during a beach vacation on a private island gone terribly awry. Hall is an expert at capturing a giant metropolis, and we’re pleased to see her talents on display in a more intimate, locked-room setting.
