Virtual Murder
What's on the Internet for mystery buffs?
The goal of this page is to maintain a listing of online mystery-related sources without including subpages, to avoid sending you to the same site over and over again. The list was originally compiled for the Virtual Murder panel at Bouchercon 27, October 1996, and has more than quadrupled since then.

Some authors and fictional characters have numerous web pages -- John Grisham, Stephen King, Sherlock Holmes, etc.  In those cases the single site listed contains links to the others.

Please send any additions or corrections to Barbara Paul.
