Fiddling with Neros

The Wolfe Pack, a New York-based fan organization, has announced its nominees for the 2010 Nero Award, “presented each year to an author for the best mystery written in the tradition of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe stories.” The contenders are:

The Fleet Street Murders, by Charles Finch
The Crack in the Lens, by Steve Hockensmith
Faces of the Gone, by Brad Parks

(Curiously, all three of these titles come from St. Martin’s Minotaur.)

The winner will be named during the Black Orchid Banquet, which is traditionally held on the first Saturday of December in Manhattan.
