Best crime fiction reads so far in 2011
To be on this list books have to be rated 4.8 and above in my reviews this year.
That is no mean feat.
When I made my mid year list there were 16 titles on the list. Now there are 21.
There are just 4 Australian titles and one New Zealander on the list. Can you pick them?
I think I would have expected more translated titles to make the list. Can you pick them?
There is one Irish writer. And 4 writers each appear twice.
