Randomly, after listening to an NPR book review

Has anyone ever noticed how important place is to mystery series?

Hiassen and MacDonald, Florida

Chandler, L.A.

Sayers, Perry, Grimes, England

Penny, Three Pines, Quebec, Canada

and now Loomis, Provincetown.

All famous, justifiably so. And all with superb ability to convey place.

How about Water Valley,Ms
with a young mother of two
as the protagonist??
Surely there must be demons lurking
in "them there" parts?
