If you read my blog, you know I'm a LISTMAKER. So here we are at the end of the year, and the "Best Crime Fiction of 2019" lists are coming out. Time to do a round-up of these lists since you're probably ready to buy books for the holidays (and catch up on mysteries for yourself). The following links are culled from Best of Lists from newspapers, periodicals, bookstores, bloggers, and crime writers. Be sure and check back to this post over the next few weeks . Have a list of your own favorites? one yourself? Make a comment below with a link! Happy Reading!
