With Crime Fest in Bristol approaching fast I thought that England should be the theme of the May Miniquiz, and the question should be straightforward.

Name the TEN National Parks in England and name for each park one crime fiction book set there for as many of these parks as you can? 

Please just put your answers in the comments or email them to thbear08@google 
by Friday 8 May [midnight BST].

This is the fourth quiz in the battle for the big prize and so far the leading contenders have been from Australia, Denmark, New Mexico, Scotland, Texas, Virginia and Wales.
Come on England!

Isn't it best to email the answers as others can copy from the comments?

Hi CFR the comments are moderated so I can just read them and then reject them. But I will modify and allow emails.

Good point!

I can get the 10 parks but I am stuck on a book.

Which is better than last time's quiz for me...

Wait a minute. Regarding CFR's last comment - are we looking for one book that covers all ten parks or at least one book per park.

I am sorry I did not make it clear, I am a bit distracted, one book for each park if possible.

Norman, your were clear, I just had a moment of insecurity. I have a preliminary list of titles but now am trying to understand what "national park" means in England.

Ah, that's better: one book per park. And I have until Friday...

I think I´d better give up on this one before I begin trying. It is a really good task, though, which I would have enjoyed if I had had time :D
