How well do you know your settings?

By R.J. Harlick

I hope you had a great holiday. I’m playing hooky today. Instead of answering the question, I thought I would test your criminal minds with a quiz. I don’t know about you, but one of the reasons I enjoy reading mysteries is I get to travel to some pretty interesting places. Name a favourite location and it’s likely you’ll discover that someone has set their mystery there. 

Today’s quiz is testing your knowledge of these settings. Match the place with the series and with the author. Easy, eh? I’ll post the answers tonight at 10:00 EDT.
