You want some recommendations for something to read?

I've chanced upon some mystery novels from Iceland of all places! Brrrrrr, if you want to cool yourself off during a long hot summer in Egypt, then these might be for you. And not just one author but several from Iceland and other nice frosty parts of Northern Europe.

I read about murder most foul and the fouler the better, John Connelly, Michael Connelly( no relation) Tess Gerritsen, James Paterson, Faye and Johnathan Kellerman, Mo Hayder.
For very light relief i fall back on my Agatha Christie collection.
Oh one i forgot was michael Marshall very good :)

Ian Rankin and Barbara Nadel are 2 favorites also . . . have managed to plow through most of what has already been published . . . and with Nadel I had to order used books from the UK because some hadn't been released in the States.

As you liked" Little House on the Prarie" you may like Anne McCaffrey stories like" The Dragons of Pern "and all the other ones about Pern - theres no sex and violence, just very good different stories - -

The Barbara Nadel books that I've read take place in Turkey . . . mainly Istanbul . . . but they have been know to wander around the countryside at times. If you think Rankin is slow, maybe you will like these better, lol . . . they start out with a murder usually . . . and some very unusual ones at times! They also bring in different social issues, religious issues, illegal immigration issues, etc . . . even an older woman/younger man relationship, hehe!!!

Here's a link to the as-yet-to-be-released "River of the Dead" . . . http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... R&v=glance
