The Top 5 in November

The posts that received the most attention in the last four Novembers: 2013, the "Jane Bunker" case; 2014, Armstrong Livingston (Armstrong who?); 2015, swords and sleuthery; and 2016, one of the latest Crippen & Landru collections.

Last month saw some of the biggest readership numbers yet recorded for ONTOS, and from every continent (Antarctica excepted, of course). As always, we appreciate you and hope you keep coming back.
