With the end of 2014 on its way, I got to thinking about how I had unintentionally neglected to read novels this year by some of the genre’s best-selling wordsmiths. Really, success as a crime-fictionist should not be punished in that way! So I’ve made a commitment to pay attention over the next year not only to the myriad up-and-comers, but also to those many creative, conscientious folk who have devoted themselves for years to enriching this field. I share more thoughts on the matter in my latest column for Kirkus Reviews. Enjoy!
