In Pursuit of Deadly’s David

With just over three weeks to go now before the opening of this year’s Deadly Ink Mystery Conference (August 5-7) in New Brunswick, New Jersey, organizers have announced their selection of nominees for the 2016 David Award. Here they are:

Ornaments of Death, by Jane K. Cleland (Minotaur)
Big Shoes, by Jack Getze (Down & Out)
What You See, by Hank Phillippi Ryan (Forge)
Forgiving Mariela Camacho, by A.J. Sidransky (Berwick Court)
Pretty Girls, by Karin Slaughter (Morrow)

Convention attendees will choose the recipient of this prize for the best mystery novel published in 2015, and the declaration of a winner will take place during a banquet on Saturday, August 6.

In case you don’t know this, the David Award is named in memory of David G. Sasher Sr., a New Jersey resident who passed away in 2006 at age 66, after working on the Deadly Ink convention.
