30 Nefarious Ways to Celebrate the 4th of July

Among other invaluable services, the inimitable Janet Rudolph curates mysteries themed by holiday, and during vacation is when many of us have more time for crime! Here are a few Independence Day treats:


The Fourth of July Wake by Harold Adams

Murder on Parade by Donald Bain (as Jessica Fletcher)

Hair of the Dog by Laurien Berenson

The Cat Who Went Underground by Lilian Jackson Braun

Dead on the 4th of July by Meg Chittenden

Someone to Watch Over Me by Jill Churchill

Independence Day by Anne-Marie Clark

Twanged by Carol Higgins Clark

Red, White, and Blue Murder by Bill Crider 


Keep in mind, this is only authors A-C, courtesy of Mystery Fanfare, where you can see the whole list, as well as short fiction, true crime, and children's mysteries, too. But if you want to read a month's worth of mystery by the last firework show, you might need to rent extra eyeballs!
