2010 Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards

Shortlisted nominees for the 2010 Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards were announced last night, according to blogger-author Declan Burke. There are 10 categories of competitors, with 6novels in contention for Ireland AM Crime Fiction Book of the Year honors:

City of Lost Girls, by Declan Hughes (John Murray)
Time of Death, by Alex Barclay (HarperCollins)
Faithful Place, by Tana French (Hachette Books Ireland)
The Missing, by Jane Casey (Ebury)
Dark Times in the City, by Gene Kerrigan (Vintage)
The Twelve, by Stuart Neville (Vintage)

Hat Tip to J. Kingston Pierce, The Rap Sheet, who agrees with Declan Burke that Kevin McCarthy's Peeler should be on the list. Haven't read that nor three of the books above, so I better get reading!
