    While we are only weighing in on 2 categories, I wanted to mention that there are some wonderful books this year in the Juvenile category. My 10 yr old grandson and I have shared a couple. The Blackthorn Key and If You Find This (very different books) and have embarked on Catch You Later, Traitor, incidently set in the same city and time as Night Live from the Best Novel category

    @Janmaus, I agree! The Edgars are always full of great titles, we just didn’t have the time/manpower to cover every category. But thanks for sharing some of the juvenile titles you enjoyed!
