thanks for this news, Karen. I've actually read five of these already so it won't be too much work to finish the list by the time the winner is announced. It's a really good shortlist, based on the ones I've read.

Sorry, correction, I realise I have read I Will Have Vengeance, so I've read all six ;-) I was getting muddled up with I Am God because the titles are similar.

Currently reading Until Thy Wrath be Past and have TBR De Giovanni and Varesi. I did very much enjoyed the books by Camilleri, Meyer and Nesbo. It will be a tough choice, no doubt.
