Congratulations to them all. It's interesting to me that I've not heard of these authors nor have I read any of their books. Looks like I have some catching up to do.

The best part of that list is that my friend Dru Ann Love won the Raven. She is an amazing lady and a fantastic reader blogger.

Congratulations to all. However, I must say, as I usually do when learning of the Edgar Winners each year - I haven't read ANY of the books.
