Lovely! I've read 4 of these books - Glass Houses (and I'm, of course, partial that one), Magpie Murders, The Dry, and The Day I Died. Really liked all of them.

Magpie Murders

I have the following stacked up with many others:

Glass Houses
The Dry

Thanks for sharing the nominee list. Guess I better register for Bcon so I can vote. With the seminar so close to home, I’m planning on attending this one. Hey Lesa ... maybe we can finally meet face to face!?
