Where did they get that list from. Aside from not knowing a few of the authors, I hadn't heard of any of the books. Off the authors I recognize, aside from McCall Smith, they all seem very dark. I think we need to lighten up.

I agree, it's a very odd list. I've read only 6 of the books, and I haven't heard of three people at all.

I've only read two.

Elly Griffiths has become one of my new favorite authors. I have heard of 11 out of the 15 and read something by most of them. I'm sure others would make a different list. I am always looking for new authors so this list is fine with me.
