Nero Nominees, IndieFab Faves

We are indebted this morning to Janet Rudolph of Mystery Fanfare, who has brought us the lists of finalists for the 2014 Nero Award, presented every year by the Nero Wolfe/Archie Goodwin/Rex Stout fan organization, The Wolfe Pack:

Ask Not, by Max Allan Collins (Forge)
Three Can Keep a Secret, by Archer Mayor (Minotaur)
Murder as a Fine Art, by David Morrell (Mulholland)
A Study in Revenge, by Kieran Shields (Crown)
A Question of Honor, by Charles Todd (Morrow)

The victorious book and author will be announced on December 6, during the Black Orchid Banquet, to be held in New York City.

Rudolph also brings word of which works won Foreword Reviews’ 2014 IndieFab Book of the Year Awards. These commendations were handed ’round last evening during the American Library Association annual conference in Las Vegas. Nevada. Recipients, we’re told, were chosen by “a select group of librarians and booksellers from around the country.” There are multiple winners in dozens of categories (find the complete list here), but below are the Gold medal victors that might be of greatest interest to Rap Sheet readers:

As She Left It, by Catriona McPherson (Midnight Ink)

Thriller and Suspense:
Utopia, Texas, by Michael E. Glasscock II (Greenleaf)
