Someone once told me that people are more likely to go with a name. It was also the best mystery/crime novel for goodreads choice last year. I don't get it either.

Thanks ... Will be interesting to see how much increase in readership will be directed at Dry Bones, a worthy winner.

Th..."


I would imagine that these lists tend to help sales, so I would think that even being on a shortlist would be a good thing.
