My goodness, we’re going to have to clear out a room in Sean’s house for all of his awards. Many, many congratulations to you, my friend, and many congrats to Mr. Sakey as well. And friend of Killer Year Tim Maleeny’s STEALING THE DRAGON was on this list too, so bravo to you too Tim!

Lots of incredible reads on this list. Many congrats as well to brilliant writer John Connolly, whose Charlie Parker series really does rank among the very best books on the market today. That category in particular is spot-on, with Lee Child, Barry Eilser and Ken Bruen. Good taste you Crimespree folks have!

Without further ado…
