Crime Fiction Alphabet: the summary U - Z

This year's edition of the Crime Fiction Alphabet is now completed and this week I've published four summary posts. Many thanks to all the participants!

By Friday of each week participants had to write a blog post about crime fiction related to the letter of the week which was displayed each Monday.
[Those who intended to participate regularly signed up here.]

Their post had to be related to either the first letter of a book's title, the first letter of an author's first name, or the first letter of the author's surname. There was lots of choice: a review, or a bio of an author, so long as it fitted the rules  somehow. Sometimes participants interpreted the rules very laterally, particularly with "difficult" letters.

We used Mr Linky to display participants' posts, and in most weeks there were 12 to 16 participants.

Below are the Mr Linky links for U-Z. The summary list for the 26 weeks: Crime Fiction Alphabet

Meant to thank you earlier, Kerrie, for a job well done. You kept the whole thing organized and did a yeoman's job to make sure everything ran smoothly. It was a fun meme. Thanks again!
