Agatha Webb

by Anna Katharine Green

Really good mystery tale. Anna Katharine Green is often credited as the author who first popularized detective fiction. Arthur Conan Doyle went out of his way to meet her when he first toured the US. I have read about five of her books and they are a little hit and miss, with some a little too formulaic and predictable. Agatha Webb is masterful and engaging.

Her debut novel, Justification for Murder, has, in the meantime, earned rave reviews and grown into a series. As our author of the day, Barnes reveals why she picked Silicon Valley as the backdrop, her inspiration behind writing a biomedical thriller and how she went for ride-alongs with the San Jose Police Department.
