Endeavour's mystery offerings tend to the edgier, thriller-focused side of the genre, with modern day mysteries intermingled with historical thrillers. For readers who enjoy following a particular character through a series, the press offers multiple books from several authors, including:
- Anthea Fraser's well-reviewed DCI David Webb British procedural series
- J.M. Gregson's Lambert and Hook and Percy Peach series
- Roger Ormerod's series featuring ex-DI Richard Patton
Alison Joseph's Murder Will Out is a British village mystery with Agatha Christie as the star - not as an author but as an amateur detective investigating a death in the neighborhood. It is well-reviewed and will appeal to fans of Christie as well as fans of the British cozy genre.
Sherlock Holmes' fans will be drawn to Endeavour's collection of Sherlockian mysteries and pastiches from various authors, including Roger Riccard and David Britland. David Dickinson's Mycroft Holmes titles also will be attractive to Sherlock fans. Endeavour extends their appeal to fans of traditional detective stories by offering several Raffles "Gentleman Thief" mysteries from Richard Foreman.
