Over 1,200 mysteries set in the San Francisco area have been compiled by Randal Brandt, Brancroft Library curator. All these wonderful mysteries can be found here: Golden Gate Mysteries. I'm quite fond of mysteries set in the Southwest U.S. and bibliomysteries but I just may pick a few from this list to become better acquainted with this locale (I've always enjoyed Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone mysteries which are set in the San Francisco area). What a useful resource Randal has created! Perhaps another industrious soul will do this for mysteries set in the Southwest? Well, someone has. The folks at BiblioTravel!
