A journalist seeks out stories that other professionals (other than detectives – either private or police officers) don’t generally try to find, and subsequently solve. Perhaps this is the reason that there are so many journalist/reporter sleuths who star in the mysteries that we love to read. Here is the second part of the three part list of authors (with lasts names beginning with H – M) who are on the Cozy Mystery Site and who happen to write series which feature reporter / journalist sleuths:
