Murder at the Olympics: An Olympics Crime Fiction list!

The Winter Olympics starts today! It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Olympics have been filled with drug scandals, sexual intrigue, disappearing athletes, death and theft!

Thanks for mentioning my books, Janet. The Figure Skating Mysteries are actually a series: Murder on Ice, On Thin Ice, Axel of Evil, Death Drop, and Skate Crime.

Let the games begin!
