From ‘Murder, She Wrote’ to ‘Longmire’

I read and watch a lot of detective stories, and the type I really enjoy are place-centered. The ones where the crimesolver's hometown is as much a part of the story as the crime that starts the story rolling. New York, Chicago, L.A. and San Francisco have more than their fair share of detectives. So does London, and for some reason, rural England. The butler rarely does it, but mystery readers seem to really love any crime that takes place in one of the "stately homes of England."
