Sequels and Series

If only all authors were as considerate to readers (and library shelvers) as Sue Grafton (whose mysteries are titled with the letters of the alphabet A is for Alibi etc.), there would never be a need to ask what book comes next. Since most author’s aren’t so accommodating,  a number of books and websites have been developed over the years to tell you what book comes next in the series. Find some of the ones I find most useful below.
