The best mystery novels of 2017

This year brought readers a rich array of mystery fiction with involving plots and believable characters. Some of the best mystery writers juggle more than one series that follows a different lead character. Two authors on this year-end list -- Michael Connelly and C.J. Box -- each published two equally strong novels in separate series. 

This year’s list includes first-timers, as well as veteran authors, and seven debuts from authors to watch. Here are my picks for the best mystery fiction of 2017.

Happy reading.
