Stop You're Killing Me
Stop, You’re Killing Me! was created by Bonny Brown in 1998. She had to give up maintaining the site in April 2006 because of health reasons. Here is Bonny’s description of the site: “I love a good mystery! When I find new authors, I want to read everything they’ve written. I like to go back to the beginning title and follow the development of a writer’s work. With the exception of Sue Grafton and her alphabet series, it can be difficult to find an author’s first book. So I have searched online and in reference books to list the books featuring series characters in the order written.”
Since Aprill 2006, Lucinda Surber and Stan Ulrich share the work of maintaining Stop You’re Killing Me!
