#crimefictionvibe 2: 15 (more) images that hint at crime fiction

Last month I published the first 15 in a series of images from around the world that reminded me of classic crime fiction scenes. The images were of "grey, tempestuous skies; eerie cracks of light in a dark wood, a solitary street lamp in a deserted nocturnal landscape."

Each image is designed to inspire fear, apprehension, solitude, vastness, and often, an eerier, darker emotion. 

The home of a Bond villain on the island in the distance? – Marsala, Italy. 

Looking down or up? The vastness of a forest is a favoured location for crime fiction writers – South Bohemia, CZ. 

Big Brother is watching you – Melbourne, AU.

Dartmoor, replete with all its legends of wild creatures on the Moors, has been immortalized in crime fiction by writers such as Conan Doyle. 

Tunnel chases are another crime fiction favourite, with detectives forced to pull up their trouser hems and chase bad guys in a sort of rat-infested, subterranean homesick blues – Perugia, Italy.

There's always trouble hedging…
