A-Z Mystery Author Challenge

I'm always excited to get an email from Michelle saying that her A-Z Mystery Author challenge sign-up is ready to go.  I just got it tonight.  You all have to know that I love me some mysteries!  And I love trying to fill out the alphabet with mystery authors. 

Rules: A-Z represents the LAST name of the author in the mystery, thriller, suspense, cozy, noir, etc. genre. Read as many or as little as you want. Post your links at her site for your Challenge post and your reviews! (click link above to take you there).  Challenge Runs February 6, 2015 - February 6, 2015
My declared commitment will once again be for the letters A-M.  I say that because, although I will try for every letter, I will probably have to cheat on the letter X.  There are few authors whose last name starts with X and even fewer in mystery genres I like--so I'll probably wind up sticking an X wherever it will work.  
Here's my list. Sometimes, I fill it in ahead of time--this year I'm going to fill them in as they come:
