I love crime fiction! If, like me, you are intrigued by locations associated with some of the more celebrated writers of the genre, then this is a must for you.

Mind you, the uninspiring photographs and dense text did put me off a bit but it covers all the major writers and sets them squarely in the landscapes or cities about which they write.

I just wish it was better set out and had colour photographs.

This is not the kind o book you will want to read from cover to cover but as a reference book into which you might dip from time to time then it's just the ticket!

for all mystery lovers 13 May 2008
By Julie B. - Published on Amazon.com

i think i came across this in a catalogue - but found it cheaper through amazon. first i checked it out from the library, then liked it so well, that i bought my own copy so that i could take my time with it; take notes, etc. there are great pictures of the places and lots of information on names of authors and books that go with specific places you can visit in the uk. we took a trip there last year, and really enjoy reading books that take place in some of the places we visited. it's well-written and packed full of interesting stuff. i'm making it sound dry, but it isn't. there is a bit of history, a bit of biography, and a bit of travelogue and it's all written so well, that it is very compelling. i didn't want to put it down.
