Eyes on the Prizes

Fifty books in 10 categories were announced as finalists today in the running for the 2013 Los Angeles Times Book Prizes. Winners will receive their awards during a ceremony on April 11 (the evening before the start of this year’s L.A. Times Festival of Books). Contenders in the Mystery/Thriller category are as follows:

Hour of the Red God, by Richard Crompton (Sarah Crichton)
The Cuckoo's Calling, by Robert Galbraith (Mulholland)
Sycamore Row, by John Grisham (Doubleday)
The Rage, by Gene Kerrigan (Europa Editions)
The Collini Case, by Ferdinand von Schirach (Viking)

In addition, Daniel Woodrell’s The Maid’s Version (Little, Brown), which in some respects qualifies as a character-rich crime novel, is a contestant in the Fiction category.
