Making It in Minnesota

Richard A. Thompson’s 2011 standalone mystery, Big Wheat: A Tale of Bindlestiffs and Blood (Poisoned Pen Press), picked up top honors in the Genre Fiction category during last night’s presentation, in St. Paul, of the 24th annual Minnesota Book Awards.

Also nominated in that category were The Bone House, by Brian Freeman (Minotaur); Northwest Angle, by William Kent Krueger (Atria); and Death of the Mantis, by Michael Stanley (Harper).

Omnimystery News adds that “Another mystery author took home the Readers’ Choice Award: Kurtis Scaletta for his ’tween book The Tanglewood Terror (Knopf/Random House Children's Books).”
