So Many Choices

Not content with already having announced their nominees for “the best crime novels of 2020,” CrimeReads editors have followed that up by posting lists of this year’s top-notch noir novels, debut novels, gothic-flavored tales, and true-crime books. It all reminds me of how many books I never got around to reading these last 12 months.

Meanwhile, George Easter, the editor of Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine, has made a valiant attempt to compile a master list of as many “best crime fiction of 2020” choices as he can find. Predictably, there will be more such offerings to come between now and the close of December, but this is a useful overview for the nonce.
