?Why does the mystery novel enjoy such enduring appeal? There is no simple answer. It has a distinctive capacity for subtle social commentary, a concern with the disparity between law and justice, and a passion for order, however compromised. Even in the vision of the darkest of mystery writers, it provides us with a glimpse of the world as it might be, a world in which good men and women do not stand idly by and allow the worst aspects of human nature to triumph without opposition. It can touch upon all these facets while still entertaining the reader.?

?From the introduction of Books to Die ForMystery authors from twenty countries reveal their favorite mystery novels, in a collection of essays that features contributions from Jo Nesbo, Jeffery Deaver, and Sophie Hannah.
