Spring Mystery Book Group: Award Nominees

Our Mystery Book Group has been meeting every Tuesday night in Berkeley (CA) for more years than you can imagine. We usually do a session in the Spring on Crime Fiction nominees. The nominees come from the Edgars, the Barrys and other awards. We've already read and discussed some of the nominees, so I chose a variety from different categories, different awards, and different types of mystery.
