Asian Crime Fiction

Here is a book list I put together for a display.  I don't much care for Scandinavian crime, but it has been credited with encouraging the growth of international crime fiction in English.  These books have Asian characters or Asian settings or both.  I include only books that our library owns, but the list might be of use to librarians, or as a reading checklist.  Where only the series name is given, see Fantastic Fiction for titles.  The image, which I borrowed from Grand Theft Auto, was used on my display poster, with the brushstroke font Bonzai.
