Joyland by Stephen King is the only one on my pile now. I don't read many American authors, I haven't heard of most of those.

Glad for Carolyn Hart, she's one of my favorite authors.  I think they should add a category for cozie mysteries........

I read Ghostman by Roger Hobbs for the 2013 Challenge in the new author category. The MC lives entirely off the grid, so that no one knows anything about him. He's hired to "fix" a heist that was screwed up, one-of-a-kind sort of career.

Thomas H Cook is nominated for Sandrine's Case this year. I'm currently reading The Chatham School Affair, for which he previously won the Edgar, and previously read Evidence of Blood. Both books focus on murder cases from the early 20th century.

Robert Crais is nominated for Grand Master. I've read his standalone books The Two-Minute Rule and Demolition Angel, have Hostage on my TBR pile, and Suspect on my wish list. I haven't yet delved into his Elvis Cole or Joe Pike series..

WOW I have read one of them --- "Ordinary Grace" by William Kent Krueger.  I definitely need to read more by Thomas H. Cook.

I apparentely need to expand my mystery reading - and here I thought I was a rabid connoiseur of the mystery genre. I've only read a handful of those books. I'll have to go through and add some to my WL.

I read How the Light Gets In/Louise Penney (fantastic book, as always) and have Rage Against the Dying/Becky Masterson on my WL here and at the library.  Read Lori Roy's first book and haven't decided whether or not to try the one that was nominated. Her books seem to be rather bleak and somewhat depressing...have to be in the right mood!!!
