International Mysteries
Mysteries from around the world. You'll note that there are some titles and authors that are missing ( Example Stig Larson & Alexander McCall Smith). There is a very good reson for that. I have tried to read thier stuff, and to be perfectly honest with you. I could not throw thier work ( if you want to call it that) far enough away!   Print this list Print this list
