About meI have been reading mystery/crime titles almost as long as I can remember, certainly all of my adult life.
I have travelled quite a lot since 1972 and enjoy reading novels set in places I have been to.
I am the founder/owner of oz_mystery_readers (, a smallish Yahoo group that discusses crime/mystery fiction available in Australia.
I review crime fiction. Leave me a message if you would like me to review for you. I just need a copy of the book :-) I have a Kindle so can read e-books in the right format.

About my libraryI read mainly, in fact almost exclusively, crime/mystery and have a strong preference for British crime, but also read Australian, translated Scandinavian crime but in practice almost any.
In general the books listed here are not books I own now - they have been borrowed from the library, or from friends, or if I did buy them, they have been handed on to friends and relatives

I've just been reading a review of your os one of the Inspector Espinosa books by Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza

We seem to have similar tastes in reading although I read mostly non-British crime fiction (probably becuase I'm in Englamnd so it's not as intesting as exploring the world)- which brings me to the reason for this note...

I've been compiling a list of Crimee/Mystery Fiction by location around the globe over in the 'Crime, Thriller & Mystery Group' on Librarything (I started it as a state by state list for the USA but got carried away) and was wondering if you had any suggestions for authors or books you might have come across in reading travels. It's aboiut where the book is set rather than where the author is from and is for books in English Translation and which are still available in some way shape or foem. I was sticking to print books but the line between e-books and print is blurring and where a location is sparsley covered I have started including ebooks too..It's kind of a labour of love and hopefully a resource, anyway, if you have any ideas stop by the list and leave a message
James Mcpehereson???? "Standing in another mans grave" Surely you mean Ian Rankin : )
