Booklist has posted their picks for The Year’s Best Crime Novels: 2012!
They admit, "It gets harder and harder to pick the year’s best crime fiction. There is so much outstanding work in this ever-expanding genre that it’s confounding even to know where to start."
We totally agree. However, we think they found some great books to feature this year including two of our favorites, THE DEVIL SHE KNOWS by Bill Loeflem which they call, "suspenseful and remarkably textured," and IRON HOUSE by John Hart which has "beyond-genre depth!"
They also listed their Top Five Debut Crime Novels including Rick Gavin's RANCHERO which has "pitch-perfect" dialogue!Read more
