Amateur Hour

Hoping to repeat the qualified success of last year’s “World’s Favorite Detective” tournament (which finished with Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch on top), blogger Jen Forbus has posted her first set of match-ups in a competition to choose the “World’s Favorite Amateur Sleuth.” Among the 64 nominees, selected by readers of Forbus’ blog, are Craig McDonald’s Hector Lassiter, Harlan Coben’s Myron Bolitar, Joan Druett’s Wiki Coffin, Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, Elizabeth Peters’ Amelia Peabody, and Timothy Hallinan’s Poke Rafferty.

Click here to vote for your favorites. You have until Saturday, March 12, to let your preferences be known.
