New to me authors in 2010: crime fiction of course

Following precedents set earlier this month by Reactions to Reading, The Game's Afoot, Petrona, and View from the Blue House, here is my list of new-to-me authors in 2010. In some cases the author has been publishing for a while, and they just haven't come to my notice. In other cases there has been only one novel so far.
There are 46 on my list, so about 1 in 3 of the books I read in 2010 are by authors who are new to me.

I've hyperlinked the list to my reviews, but you'll see also that in some cases I have also gone on to read another title by that particular author.

Great list Kerrie. I've read lots of those names too this year but still have a few more to try. Am looking forward to my first Leighton Gage which I think will kick off my 2011 Global Challenge
