Memorable Books from 2011

Whilst I can normally manage to cobble together one of those dreaded "Top 10" listings for some of the mailing lists or, just before Christmas, on the Sisters in Crime website, I hate doing them.  It's such an arbitrary number, and doesn't even allow me the luxury of a favourite book per month.  So instead, a few reminders to myself on what really stayed with me from last year's reading list of 135 books.

Another Wyatt book, another "for pleasure" reread.

From the Blurb:

Wyatt is broke - and angry.  The Mesics took his money a year ago.  It's time to get it back.

The Outfit has other plans.  They want Wyatt dead.  $40,000 is a small price to pay to make it happen.

Opening Lines:

The stranger appeared just after lunch on day one of Wyatt's operation against the Mesics.

Blurb from the book

Nine tautly plotted stories of crime and detection ranging from the darkly dangerous to the frankly comical.  All with young adult central characters - some authors have taken their own characters back to their childhood - others have created completely new characters.
