INTERNATIONAL MYSTERIES: Mystery Readers NorCal Winter Book Group

Our weekly Tuesday night Mystery Readers NorCal mystery book group has been meeting for over 35 years. Every winter we 'travel' together to distant lands with a list featuring International Crime Fiction. In real time/real space this takes place every Tuesday night at 7 in Berkeley, CA. Since we read a book a week for at least 40 weeks a year, we've discussed a lot of books. Nevertheless, I put together what I think is a great list of books that we have not yet discussed. Some of the books are written by residents of the countries in which they are set, some are written by "outsiders." Whatever, this list offers something for everyone in our book group. Feel free to follow along with us and send comments.
