Edgar Award Nominees
The nominees for the best novel include a number of authors who are mystery names themselves.
One is Karin Alvtegen, whose novel, "Missing" is one of the nominees. There are many wonderful mystery review publications but somehow this novel escaped my notice.
In this novel, Sybilla, born to a wealthy family, leaves home and lives on the streets of Stockholm.
She gets by through vatious cons, one of her favorite is to get a hotel guest to buy her dinner and provide a room for the night.
However, after she wakes up one morning the guest is dead and she must avoid suspicion. Sounds interesting, I've put it on my to be read list and will report later.
