Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of The Year Longlist

The Dying Breed (US Title The Price of Blood) is on it. There are twenty books in all, to be whittled down to a shortlist of eight, by means of a public vote.
You can vote here:
The Vote Now! box on the top left of the page will take you to the longlist.
Obviously, I'd prefer if you voted for me.

Well, fellow posters, since my mouth was watering about the fun y'all will have at Boucheron, a mystery festival I can't attend, I found another one to not attend!
I peeked in at Declan Hughes' blogsite THE PARTING GLASS earlier this morning and he's touting this UK festival. It's at in July and has some special guests. Among them are Val McDermid, Ian Rankin, Karin Slaughterr, Jeffrey Deaver, and Jeff Lindsay. Declan was urging his fans to vote for his book THE DYING BREED, which is the UK title of THE PRICE OF BLOOD. Seems the 2010 Theakston Old Peculier Crime short list will be composed of not so current crime novels! And after all, Declan's 3rd Ed Loy won the EDGAR award for best mystery!

Meanwhile, although I have the newest book to read by Hughes and by Benjamin Black, my favorite Irish mystery writers, I picked up Stuart Neville's THe GHOSTS OF BELFAST. Thought I'd hop up to Northern Ireland for a change. Anybody read Neville's book. He's going to be a Harrogate.

AND yes, English majors, this particular peculiar is spelled peculier!

Sorry, Declan Hughes. THE PRICE OF BLOOD won an Edgar nomination for best mystery. That's almost as good!
