Best of the Year
Here then are a list three really good books that I was privileged to read this past year:
Dope by Sara Gran
The Guards by Ken Bruen
The Blood Knot by John Galligan
If I were more organized and a real go getter, I would have cajojled the reviewers at Nasty, Brutish, Short into giving out an award for the best mystery short story reviewed that year. I'd have called it The Shortie, andmy nomination would have gone to G. Miki Hayden's story "Murder at Marcus Garvey Park". A beautifully told story.
