#FeistyFeb #InternationalCrime The hero in this book has ties to the Italian mob. #romansty

I think a lot of others used this for #InternationalCrime as well, but it's just such a good book. #FeistyFeb

#feistyfeb day 25: #internationalcrime
Oops I'm playing catchup today. I guess I was too involved in putting up next month's challenge post yesterday!
I love how more crime/mystery/detective fiction is available fr international writers these days.
From top right: Japan, Japan, Southeast Asia (begins w Malaysia), Singapore, China, Laos (although the writer is British and the main character is the chief coroner)

DGRachel Ooh, these look good. Thanks for blowing up my TBR!😂 3y
readordierachel I loved Out! So disturbing and good. 3y
kspenmoll More for my TBR... 3y
BookishMe Aunty Lee's Delights is in my list too... I completed Sharmini Flint cos I can't resist series though stories felt flat to me. When you are branching out of SEAsia, look Up Tarquin Hall's Vish Puri series. I was absolutely entertained by books! 3y
magictoyshop @BookishMe YES to Vish Puri! I've read the entire series -- so hilarious & so deserving of more readers 3y
RealLifeReading @DGRachel @kspenmoll you're welcome 😊 3y
RealLifeReading @MaleficentTheBookDragon one thing I really liked about Aubrey Lee's Delights was all the food... 😂 3y
RealLifeReading @ReadOrDieRachel Natsuo Kirino is one of my faves! 3y
RealLifeReading @BookishMe yes I only managed the first 2? 3? of the Flint series. @magictoyshop will definitely have to check that out. Also I've heard of this series set in India. Have you read it? 3y
magictoyshop @RealLifeReading oh hey this is the first I'm hearing of the series--looks pretty promising, according to goodreads reviews. 3y
DGRachel @magictoyshop I second the recommendation of Inspector Chopra. 😁 3y
magictoyshop @DGRachel wahou now I'll *have* to download the mobi 🤓 3y

I borrowed this from the library a while back and really enjoyed it. Two bodies wash up on Sweden's shores, but the clues lead back to Latvia. Definitely an #internationalcrime. #day25 #feistyfeb

#feistyfeb I'm going a little left of field with #internationalcrime . This #nonfiction book is about the various prisoners kept within England's greatest fortress. There are crimes (sometimes real, sometimes more a crime of being the wrong person at the wrong time), and England is international for this Australian (although I do have relatives there!).

RealLifeReading Sounds interesting! 3y

I don't have a lot of crime novels- I miss too much sleep trying to find out what happened! But this #internationalcrime novel comes very highly recommended. Plus snark. On top of Mount TBR. #feistyfeb

Bookquilter I like Peter Grant books on audio. The narrator's voice is dreamy. (edited) 3y
CherylDeFranceschi @Bookquilter Ooo...Thanks! I'll check it out. 3y
Foxyfictionista This series is amazing. I'm always a bit confused why they change the title on some British books though. 3y

I'm usually not a fan of #internationalcrime novels but Lizbeth Salander is definitely my kind of strong female protagonist. She's smart as hell and can kick ass. Loved the 1st book in the series. The 2nd could have used some editing. The 3rd was better. The 4th was written by someone else since Stieg Larsson passed away before finishing it. Not my favorite but it was still fun to return to Lisbeth's world.

EricQiao Felt the same way about the trilogy. Haven't read the 4th, don't know if I should bother... 3y
Reviewsbylola I'm with @EricQiao I just haven't been able to read he fourth one. I loved the first three. 3y
angrylilasian @EricQiao @Reviewsbylola I don't think you're missing anything. Honestly, there are better things to read right now. 😕 3y
UnidragonFrag I liked the first one.. haven't gotten around to the next two. Not sure if I'll pick up the fourth due to the different author thing. 3y
