Every year the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association nominates a handful of books for the Dilys Award — an award given to the new mystery titles which member booksellers most enjoyed selling.
Unfortunately, mysteries aren't my thing. I don't think I've read one in over a decade. So I turn to you, Flashlight Worthy Readers, to submit your descriptions of what makes the below books so great. Take a look at the list below and for the books you've read, take a moment to submit your descriptions in the provided submission boxes.
What should you say? A few sentences about the plot is great. Adding why it's such a great book is even better. Have at it!
