ScotKris: Top o’ the year for ya, 2011

Some top reads in 2011 to make great Christmas picks.  Click on the image for (a non-affiliated) link to Amazon.  Crimeficreader’s selection follows next week…

The Vault, Ruth Rendell

A perfect way to keep Inspector Wexford alive and well, and an opportunity to explore the ‘what if…’ scenario from an earlier novel.

Fifth Victim, Zoe Sharp

More high-kicking adventures for Charlie Fox, and a rare opportunity to legitimately use the overused term unputdownable!

The Dead of Winter, Jane Adams

Christie with a twist, as this country house murder mystery amply shows.

Where the Bodies are Buried, Chris Brookmyre

A new direction with this Glasgow-set crime series.

Fallen, Karin Slaughter

Another gripping read from one of the Big Names, but Slaughter never rests on her laurels.

Double Dexter, Jeff Lindsay

Should I be worried that I feel so much empathy with a serial killer…?

The Fifth Witness & The Drop, Michael Connelly

Not one, but two, superb novels from the current Master – a legal thriller and the latest Harry Bosh.

Pirate King, Laurie R King

A humorous interlude in the Mary Russell series.

The Retribution, Val McDermid

On great form with the latest Tony Hill/Carol Jordan thriller.

Picture Her Dead, Lin Anderson

Glasgow-based forensics, with more than one twist in the tale.

    Great list, coming over from Mysteries in Paradise. I have 3 on my Wishlist, MichaelC, Dexter and ValM.

    I’m a new follower, glad to have found you.

    My fav would be Bad Things Happen by Harry Dolan.
