Ten top mysteries set in the British countryside

William Shaw’s latest novel, The Birdwatcher, is set in Kent, in the south of England on the isolated stony promontory of Dungeness. One of the author's top ten mysteries set in the British countryside, as shared at The Strand Magazine:
Norfolk lies on England’s east coast, a huge, flat land that fights a constant battle for survival with the North Sea. Elly Griffiths set The Crossing Places, the first in her wonderful Ruth Galloway series, there. Galloway is an archeologist, which gives these books a privileged insight into the British landscape and its ancient history. When bones are discovered on a beach, they turn out to be Iron Age remains, but their discovery draws the young academic into the orbit of the police when a second, much less ancient set of bones is discovered.
