Best 2009 Reads

It's that time of the year: when we begin to reflect on the past year. For reviewers and other readers, that means their best reads of the year. Janet Rudolph has an impressive collection of best mystery lists at her blog. Of course, these lists often serve to remind us of the many books we did not get around to reading! But, given that constraint, I offer my own list of books I most enjoyed reading this year (some were published this year, but not all). They are:

Shatter, Michael Robotham
A Rule Against Murder, Louise Penny
The Brutal Telling, Louise Penny
A Darker Domain, Val McDermid
Echoes From the Dead, Johan Theorin
The Shanghai Moon, S.J. Rozan
Bleeding Heart Square, Andrew Taylor
The Last Refuge, Chris Knopf
River of Darkness, Rennie Airth
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, Alan Bradley
The Coroner’s Lunch, Colin Cotterill

With best wishes for many good reads in 2010!

Great list. I see some I should have added to mine.
