Shamus 2010 Nominations

The 2010 PWA Shamus nominations made their appearance last week. And like a lot of things with The Hungry Detective they are pretty late in showing up here.

As in most cases I have read very few of the nominated books. Still I'd love to see Michael Koryta win. THE SILENT HOUR is fantastic.

The Hungry Detective extends our congratulations to all of the nominees and wishes them the best of luck when the awards are handed out at this year's San Francisco B'Con.
