Read some good fiction set in other lands

A guide by Grant (Washington)

Products sampled from this guide:
A list of books (mainly thrillers) that are set in other countries. I have a bunch from Central America and Africa, and some from England too. The list has some of my favorite authors like Deon Myer and P.D. James. A good mix of murder mysteries and police procedurals I think.
