2007 - Best Paperback Original - it's a mystery. Well, yes that is the genre, but it is a mystery how this copped an Edgar in 2007. The characters did nothing for me and the protagonist's minimal dialog is written attempting to capture an asian/english dialect. That's something they told us not to do in Composition 101. After 75 pages I was struggling to maintain interest.
