The 2017 Edgar Award Nominations for Best Novel, Best First Novel, Best Paperback Original

The Edgar Awards will be handed out on April 27, 2017, in Manhattan.

I've read almost all the Best Novel and Best First Novel nominees. Usually I try to read the Best Paperback Originals as well, but I've fallen way short of that mark. I have read other books by Tyler Dilts, Robert Dugoni, and Adrian McKinty, and I can see why they were nominated. I'll keep trying. (Last year the book I most enjoyed was a paperback original!) I'll add links as I read more. 

Click on the title for my review.
