In addition to this morning’s news about Grand Master Award winners, British critic and columnist Mike Ripley has also released the list of his 2013 Shots of the Year Award recipients, in seven categories. He’s made some excellent selections, honoring fiction by Martin Cruz Smith, Robert Ryan, M.D. Villiers, and others. But of course, I would expect no less from an authority in this field such as Ripley.
If you’re looking for gifts to present to crime-fiction fans in your family this Christmas, start with Ripley’s list.
