5.) Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson (5)
6.) Field Gray by Philip Kerr (5)
7.) The End of Wasp Season by Denise Mina (5)
Of the 13 titles mentioned on 3-4 lists I had read and reviewed The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly.
There were 26 books on 2 lists. From that group my reading and reviews included:
2.) The Sherlockian by Graham Moore; and,
3.) The Troubled Man by Henning Mankell.
With Bury Your Dead and The Sherlockian both on my Bill’s Best of Fiction I had 4 of the top 46 on my list. (I did manage not to look at any other lists until I had picked my favourites.)
What I noticed most about the compilation of lists by Kerrie was that Louise Penny is the only Canadian author and the only author to have 3 different books mentioned on 2 or more lists.
It was a remarkable year for Louise. Inspector Gamache has become the best known Canadian sleuth and has achieved international stardom.
