Mignon G. Eberhart

While Mignon Good Eberhart’s name probably rings fewer bells for today’s readers than that of Dorothy Sayers or Margery Allingham, Eberhart spent half of the twentieth century being an extremely prolific, well-respected, and highly paid mystery novelist. Over her almost sixty-year-long career, Eberhart produced 59 novels and short stories, six of which featured the female amateur sleuth Nurse Sarah Keate. Eberhart’s books were a nicely-judged blend of mystery, psychological suspense, and romance, and are sure to be enjoyed by any fan of Mary Stewart or Josephine Tey.

Note: Eberhart was a Nebraskan native. Considering the dearth of notable authors that were born in Nebraska (it’s no Minnesota, that’s for damn sure) I’m surprised they haven’t put her face on their state flag.


Limited. Try used bookstores.
