Kirsten  (kmcripn) Booklist publication has an article listing the best crime novels of 2015 (little premature as it's not even half over). What do you think?

Not what I would expect given the title. Meanwhile, I have a few titles from this year that I am working through on my e-reader. Perhaps I should get back to them...

David Corbett (davidcorbett) | 6 comments World Gone By, by Dennis Lehane. "The gangster in autumn" is how the author put it. Beautiful, haunting, and still tense and surprising.
