Crime Fiction on a EuroPass – The Lake District (England)
England’s largest National Park includes Scafell Pike – its highest mountain, Wastwater – its deepest lake and thriving communities like Keswick and Bowness-on-Windermere. You can find additional information HERE.
The Lake District has been the setting for crime novels by Reginald Hill, Val McDermid and Martin Edwards. The region is also a recurring theme in Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novella The Torrents of Spring and features prominently in Ian McEwan’s Amsterdam, which won the 1998 Booker Prize (from Wikipedia).
The Lake District Mysteries by Martin Edwards features Detective Chief Inspector Hannah Scarlett and historian Daniel Kind. So far there are five books in the series, The Coffin Trail (2004), The Cipher Garden (2005), The Arsenic Labyrinth (2007), The Serpent Pool (2010) and The Hanging Wood (2011). My review of The Coffin Trail is HERE.
