Maps of murder scenes

Years ago I read lots of mysteries in paperback (all the Agatha Christies and the John Dickson Carrs/Carter Dicksons), and I used to love it when the publisher included a map of the murder scene.  A number of such maps have been assembled at the links below.

  1. I don't read murder mysteries, but I've always wished that the novels I read came with maps of the important buildings. It always bothers me when I'm reading a book and constructing a mental map, and then all of a sudden the text reads "He turned left into the kitchen" when in my mind I had placed the kitchen on the right about 50 pages ago!
