Some books sit on your bedside table — or, let’s be honest here, on a stack on your floor — for weeks as you read a little bit each night. The mystery novels on this list are not those books. These are crime novels that will make you cancel plans and ignore your resolution to go to bed at a decent hour. They’re whodunits that you’ll want to read all in one sitting because you can’t bear the thought of going another hour without knowing who killed who and why. Think of each one as a perfectly encapsulated, binge-worthy television show, ready and waiting in your queue. Now, are you ready to get totally lost? Because it's about to happen.
