When Kerrie, at Mysteries in Paradise, asked readers to list their best crime fiction reads of 2008, she might not have known what she was getting into. She intended to collate the lists, add them to hers, and make a definitive list - the best crime fiction of 2008. But, the lists she's received have all been very different.
Do you want to add your top ten crime fiction reads to Kerrie's list? Check out her blog at Mysteries in Paradise.
It was tough to narrow my list to ten, but here are my favorite crime fiction reads of 2008.
The Fault Tree by Louise Ure
Blood of the Wicked by Leighton Gage
The Cruelest Month by Louise Penny
Death Will Get You Sober by Elizabeth Zelvin
What Burns Within by Sandra Ruttan
The Crossroads by Chris Grabenstein
