2016 Edgar Awards

This is a repost of a prior blog entry:

This year's nominees are ...

To my shame I have read only one book ("Life or Death" by Michael Robotham) in the Best Novel, New Novel, Best Paperback categories. I guess there's now a big list of books ahead of me. So far I've gotten zero percent right in the years since I've tried to read all the Best Novel nominees and guess the winner.

The winners will be announced on April 28, 2016.


Note: This part was added later:

Here are my reviews of what I've read:

Let Me Die in His Footsteps by Lori Roy

Life or Death by Michael Robotham

Night Life by David C. Taylor

The Strangler Vine by M. J. Carter

The Lady from Zagreb by Philip Kerr

The Long and Faraway Gone by Lou Berney -- This is my pick for Best Novel, but it isn't even nominated for Best Novel. It is in the Best Paperback Novel category. Why?
