The Edgar Awards, presented by Mystery Writers of America, were given out tonight in New York City. Before I mention those winners though, I wanted to congratulate Hank Phillippi Ryan. Last night, Hank won the Mary Higgins Clark Award for her book The Other Woman. Terrific book, and the author is even better than terrific. Congratulations, Hank!
