Interesting post, Christie. I got about 50% of them right. And, I realized how many of them I've never read much less seen the movie version. Thanks for sharing what the Top 10 Mysteries Are!

Woo hoo! Got 'em all, but I confess I had to look at the list of authors first.
But then, I love mysteries and I write them.
