I’ve been on a real mystery/crime fiction kick lately. I feel like every other book I read is some sort of mystery, and I’m loving every second of it - I just can’t get enough! Therefore, when I first heard about the TV show Hardcover Mysteries on Investigation Discovery, I was immediately intrigued.
In this series, Investigation Discovery talks to famous mystery and crime fiction authors about real-life cases that inspired their fiction. Each one-hour episode is devoted to one author and their chosen case. The series premiered on October 11 with David Baldacci and the murder of Washington, D.C. socialite Mary Meyer in 1964. Since then, Hardcover Mysteries has focused on Lisa Scottoline, Sandra Brown, Linda Fairstein, Sara Paretsky, and Harlan Coben.
The penultimate episode of Hardcover Mysteries airs tomorrow (Monday) at 9 PM ET on Investigation Discovery. I was thrilled when someone at the Discovery Channel contacted me and asked me if I wanted to screen the episode before it airs. I immediately responded with a resounding “yes!” I was even more excited when I found out that the episode featured Kathy Reichs. I recently read the first book in her Temperance Brennan series Deja Dead, so I was completely intrigued by the episode.
Every week, I am very impressed with the quality of Hardcover Mysteries; it is a must for any mystery lover. Kathy Reichs’ episode airs tomorrow, and I highly recommend that you tune in or record it on your DVR. I can tell you that it’s a great episode, and I loved the role that Kathy personally played in the case she discusses.
