One of the best things about reading mysteries is learning about new and exotic locations. Although I personally haven't read a mystery that takes places in outer space, or under the sea, there is no reason to think someone hasn't written one. In the long hot days of summer, you might refresh yourself by visiting the Arctic Circle, or a beach resort, or anyplace you care to go. Escaping into a mystery is a mini-vacation in itself. If you are not able to get away, let a mystery take you to nearby or faraway lands. So, sit back, relax, and get traveling!
