  1. Fantastic! Women are really rising in the crime writing world. It’s going to be so difficult for the judges to first narrow this list down to a short list, and then pick the winners.
    I have only read three of the Best Novel, and I would love to read more of the books but most are hard — or very costly — to get over here.
