Can anyone please recommend a book with the following storyline:
Some sort of detective travelling to a backwater place (becoming a big deal to locals subsequently) to investigate the mysterious things there. Something along the lines of The Sleepy Hollow (as it was in the movie) or maybe the Name of the Rose. The genre really doesn't matter: anything from cyberpunk mysteries to pseudo-medieval detective stories counts.
The books I know of so far:
-The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Irving Washington (probably)
-The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
-The first two books about Witcher by Andrzej Sapkowski
-Sherlock Holmes constantly travels somewhere, as far as I remember. At least in The Hound of the Baskervilles
-Many books of Agatha Christie, probably
Is there something else?
Thanks for any suggestions!
