Hello World!
Welcome to Detectives Unite! I have decided to take a challenge this year, and I will read one book from every country in the world by the end of 2018. This is the place where I will keep you up to date with the books I am reading, the books I will read and what I think of the books.
I know I am not the first to do this, but my goal is slightly different than most. For me, I am trying to narrow my book reading list down to the noir genre detective novel written by women, hence the name Detectives Unite. Other criteria for the books that I choose, the author must have lived in their country for most of their life and the book must take place within said country.

Unfortunately, not all countries have these types of books floating around, and not all have been translated into English. Many countries have been stuck in civil strife, there have been wars, famines, floods, or a journeys of independence, thus, I am willing to go against my own criteria when need be.
