Not ready to retire yet

These sleuths may not have all their own teeth, but they do have all their own marbles, and they give everyone around them a run for their money. 

Incredibly well-written, I would recommend:

  • Christopher Fowler’s London-based Peculiar Crimes Unit series (beginning with Full Dark House) starring 80-something friends May and Byrant
  •  the dour yet wry 70-something Gerhard Self series, starting with Self's Punishment, written by Bernard Schlink (the German bestselling author of The Reader).
