During this pandemic, many of us took comfort in books. According to several industry figures, reading was up at least 5 to 20 percent. And this was a stellar year for mysteries — stories that touched us, that captured who we are as a society and what our future might be. Although the pandemic put a halt to in-person book tours, many authors, publishers, bookstores and others found that virtual tours could bring together far-flung readers. I recently moderated a virtual event sponsored by Politics and Prose, a bookstore in Washington, D.C., that featured Michael Connelly in Los Angeles and Jo Nesb? in Norway. Nearly 1,000 people attended from throughout the world. These virtual tours have become so successful they likely will continue after the pandemic — maybe even as a hybrid of in-person and virtual events to draw in more readers and save travel costs. Here are my picks for the top mysteries of 2020. Stay safe, and happy reading.
