I have a number of mystery series described on this blog, so I thought that I’d set aside a special area to put the order of the books in each series. Sometimes my blog posts are out of order by mistake or because I didn’t have a copy of a certain book at the time when I was talking about the rest of the series it belongs to.
I’ve put the various series I’ve covered into different categories. This section will probably expand later as I add more series.
These are mystery series with spooky themes. Many of them are Pseudo-Ghost Stories.
Series where clever and daring boys and young men solve the cases! Includes some vintage mysteries.
Series where brave, intelligent girls and young women solve the mysteries! Includes some vintage mysteries.
Siblings and cousins who solve cases together.
Many detectives solve their cases as teams with friends, and sometimes, they even form clubs and businesses for their investigations.

Basil is a mouse who lives with Sherlock Holmes and solves cases just like he does. By Eve Titus.
Historical Mystery Series
A series of mysteries featuring girls from different periods of American history.
A historical mystery series with Christian themes that takes place in turn-of-the-century South Carolina. Amanda Shaw is an orphan with a mysterious past but who finds a new life with relatives she had never met. By Lois Gladys Leppard.
The adopted son of a famous judge helps him to solve mysteries in feudal Japan. Not a series for young children! By Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler.
I have created a separate page for Vintage Mysteries, which are mystery series written in the 1950s and earlier. Some of these series continued for many decades. Some of them are old enough to be considered public domain now.
