      Dedicated to those of us who love British mystery books, TV shows and movies. We aim to showcase the finest authors of books in the mystery genre, whose stories either feature British detectives or the crimes take place within the British Isles.   s Among those authors who wished to endow the genre with a little literary respectability was Dorothy L Sayers, creator of the high-born sleuth Lord 5/5.

      The Good Earth was the #1 the bestseller list for two years in a row. The Good Earth remains on top. The following year, The Good Earth remained at the top spot, and Pearl Buck also occupied the third spot with another novel titled Sons. In the years to come, women authors of the s that graced the top-selling fiction list are a number that went on to become literary legends: Isak. A rural village in the s becomes a social battlefield. In Lucia in London (), the protagonist attempts social climbing in the big city. A Morbid Taste for Bones (Ellis Peters, ). Brother Cadfael, a Benedictine monk-detective, tries to solve a murder in 12th-century Shropshire (first book in a series; also adapted for British TV in.

      The achievement of modern British literature lies in the development of the short story, new movements in poetry, exciting experiments in fiction, and drama worthy of the nation that bred Shakespeare. Modern literature is characterized by great differences from the past in both form and content. New rhythms, especially in free verse, were invented.
