The mystery & crime field is large and varied and we think that this diverse selection of books represent some of the best that it has to offer. Selections were tough and after some difficult decisions some very good books just barely missed the cut.
Spinetingler would like to congratulate all of the nominees.
The polls will open tomorrow at 6am EST. Go here to vote, polls are open until April 30th.
After the jump you will find the nominees for the 2011 Spinetingler Award Best Novel: New Voice
