Hey, I'm writing a new novel and would like some advice. Basically, it's a crime novel and my main character lives in New York City, but in the book he's on vacation somewhere in the north-east USA still, but I'm unsure where yet. I was thinking Martha's Vineyard or maybe Atlantic City but I'm not sure whether it'd be libellous to set a crime novel in a real place? I know for larger cities it's okay, such as NYC and London, as many have been set there previously, but I'm unsure of the general protocol on smaller towns? I wouldn't want to write it, only to find out that what I've written was libellous. Thanks for any advice and help.
