Play "Where the @#%!^! is Detectives Beyond Borders?" and win Adrian McKinty's latest

While I've been flitting around Europe, dogged only by my home financial institution's apparent efforts to get me thrown in debtors' prison, Detectives Beyond Borders favorite Adrian McKinty has been talking up the U.S. release of his latest novel, I Hear the Sirens in the Street.

Why not, I thought, combine McKinty's work and my play and give you a chance to win a novel about which no less than Daniel Woodrell raves? So, one reader can win the book by playing Where the @#%!^! is Detectives Beyond Borders? and answering this simple question:
The name of the city where I spent the day today might prove a moving experience to readers of English who enjoy word play. Name the city.
First reader to post the right answer here and send me an e-mail at detectivesbeyondborders (at) earthlink (dot) net, including a postal address where the book should be sent, wins it.

Bonne chance!

Check your email! If you are not where the email reports, then you ought to be there (based on your clue).

As much as I would to make the Merderet River the official body of water of this blog, that is not where I was yesterday, nor am I there now. I shall always think of that river as the Murder It RIver and may therefore plan of visit there some time. Thanks for a thought-provoking entry.

A reader who declines to post his answer here guesses Tours. Not at all a bad guess, but not the right one. Keep trying!

Good thing I already have this book, because I haven't a clue.

Ah, but you can guess. There is no trick; all the clues are right there. See, I had to talk Declan Burke down from the belfry of Bristol Cathedral after the Criminal Mastermind quiz, so I decided to ease up.

Wherever you are, perhaps in France, do not pass up Le Mans. I understand it is a moving experience (although the motion picture was horrible).

Please disregard the Le Mans suggestion. I lost track of your travel itinerary. Instead, pick up a copy of Ulysses and trace the characters' movements in Dublin. I understand that is always great fun. It has become something of a cottage industry in Dublin.

R.T., not ten minutes ago I passed a statue of James Joyce. As for Le Mans, the moving would be done at a rapid pace. I'm no motor-racing fan, but I was interested to note on the way to the airport at Rennes earlier today that Le Mans is apparently right in the neighborhood, which I had not known before.

Oh, and Le Mans, while a creative guess, is incorrect.
