The New York Times' list of best mysteries for 2020

Marilyn Stasio, mystery book critic for The New York Times, presents her top books for 2020. Here is the link.   

If you are unable to see it, here is her list in brief:

The Rabbit Hunter, by Lars Kepler (my review)

Shattered Justice, by Susan Furlong (my review)

The Evil Men Do, by John McMahon

The Truants, by Kate Weinberg

Perfect Little Children, by Sophie Hannah

Don’t Turn Around, by Jessica Barry

Hard Cash Valley, by Brian Panowich

Please See Us, by Caitlin Mullen

The Forger’s Daughter, by Bradford Morrow

Lady Chevy, by John Woods

It’s nice to see Stasio laud new or lesser known authors. At the end of her list, she also gives nods to established and popular writers who had books this year and who are among her favorites: Sara Paretsky, James Lee Burke, Donna Leon, Charles Todd, Louise Penny, Jussi Adler-Olsen, Joe Lansdale, Michael Connelly.
