It's a Month of International Crime at B&N's Mystery Book Club/Forum

We're globe-trotting at Barnes & Noble's Mystery Book Club in May.

During Week One, we are featuring LEIGHTON GAGE, whose mysteries are set in Brazil.

Joining Leighton are his blog-mates, authors whose mysteries are also set in exotic places:

Cara Black (France)

Michael Sears and Stanley Trollip, writing as Michael Stanley (South Africa)

Yrsa Sigurðardóttir (Iceland)

Dan Waddell (England)

Tim Hallinan (Thailand)

During Week Two (week of May 10), author ERIN HART will join us to talk about her books, which are set in Ireland. Erin is joining us by popular request - I asked our board regulars to pick an author for this feature, and many chose Erin. There is also a separate "thread" where you can make your own recommendations for future international features.

For Week Three, our featured guest will be a relatively new author, JAMIE FREVELETTI. Jamie's first book takes us from Miami to Bogotá; her second book takes us into even more dangerous waters.

I hope to have Jo Nesbø with us during Week Four, but there may be a deadline conflict. I'll be back to confirm as soon as I have the details.
