How timely is this announcement of the shortlist of nominees for the Bloody Scotland Crime Book of the Year award (formerly known as the Deanston Scottish Crime Book of the Year) by the Bloody Scotland convention, to be held in Stirling September 11 - 13:

Thin Air by Ann Cleeves (Macmillan)
The Ghosts of Altona by Craig Russell (Quercus)

Love the Brookmyre series and a big Ann Cleeves fan. More to look for, too. Thanks for this!
