I've just returned from the Edgar Awards in NYC, given annually to those whose 2010 publications excelled in the mystery/crime writing genre.
Due to a panel I sat in on, I bought Robert Arellano's nominated book, Havana Lunar. Read it already. It was short and ultra compelling, not your everyday mystery, and Arellano has a great take on setting and atmosphere as well as character. I really loved this book. Marcel, I think, would approve. The descriptions are great, and for a whodunnit, it's not all that mired down in the conventions of clues and procedure. Plays against the genre in many ways. I love books about Cuba.
