Recent Reading Recommendations

It’s that time of year again, when newspapers, magazines, and Web sites of all sorts start publishing their lists of the “best” crime, mystery, and thriller novels issued during the preceding 12 months. We will try to keep track of them on this page as they appear.

Early out of the gates is The Washington Post, which last Thursday published its selections of 10 books not to be missed. Among the choices are Kate Atkinson’s Big Sky, Liam McIlvanney’s The Quaker, Swedish author Malin Persson Giolito’s Beyond All Reasonable Doubt, and Andrea Camilleri’s The Other End of the Line.

Concurrently, Kirkus has posted its own top choices. Among those: C.J. Box’s The Bitterroots, Steph Cha’s Your House Will Pay, Attica Locke’s Heaven, My Home, and Adrian McKinty’s The Chain.

Tell us if you spot “best of the year” lists we may have missed.
