Detectives Around the World - Thursday

Wow! Today might just be the busiest day of the whole theme week. We have a lot going on today, so clear you schedule and get ready to navigate the blog-o-sphere for detective fun.

Starting out at Whimpulsive, SuziQ is talking about the Lafferton setting in the Simon Serrailler series.

Hannah is hosting Louise Penny as her guest blogger on Word Lily. Louise will be talking about her Canadian setting.

Serena has been covering James Patterson's Alex Cross novels on Savvy Verse and Wit, so today she's going to talk about Washington D.C. as setting.

Naomi will be reviewing the most recent Earl Emerson novel, CAPE DISAPPOINTMENT at The Drowning Machine. And I bet she has another question for the $35 Aunt Agatha's gift certificate contest.

Jennifer introduced us to the OUTSIDER IN AMSTERDAM on Tuesday at Literate Housewife, and today she's back to talk about her experiences as part of a Dutch family and present-day Amsterdam.

Beth Fish is cooking up some Norwegian recipes to go with Cork O'Connor and his Minnesota setting.

Katherine will be over at the Secret Dreamworld of a Bookaholic reviewing an Inspector Ochajon novel by Batya Gur. It's time to travel to Isreal!

Pop Culture Nerd is going to take us to Greece. She's reviewing Anne Zouroudi's THE MESSENGER OF ATHENS and then sharing a slideshow of her personal photos from when she traveled to the Greek Island. If you haven't experienced a Pop Culture Nerd slideshow before, you're in for a real treat!

Over at An Adventure in Reading, Elizabeth, a.k.a. Raidergirl, will be treating us to a tour of Sicily and dishing up a Mediterranean recipe.

Katy will give us a look at William Monk's Victorian England at A Few More Pages before we head back to the U.S.

Lesa has been sharing Steven Havill's work with us all week at Lesa's Book Critiques. His series is set in a New Mexico bordertown.

Kathy took a look at Kinsey Milhone's most recent outing in U IS FOR UNDERTOW on Tuesday at Bermudaonion's Weblog and today she's going to take a look at the basis for the fictional Santa Theresa.

And here you will be able to see a review for Chris Grabenstein's upcoming novel in the John Ceepak series, ROLLING THUNDER. Of course this takes place in the fictional sea resort town of Sea Haven, so you'll be able to access a Sea Haven map and view the ROLLING THUNDER trailer.

Whew! That's a lot of detective fun packed into one day. Don't forget, voting closes at midnight Eastern tomorrow for the "World's Favorite Detective" tournament. So, if you haven't put your vote in yet, time is running out!

Happy Reading!
