continuing along the path of the year's best crime fiction, here are The Guardian's picks
Without further ado, author Mark Lawson notes The Guardian's picks for best crime and thriller books of 2015:
1. (Once again) The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. -- sigh -- I'm really starting to think it's just me at this point.
2. Disclaimer, by Renee Knight -- Lawson calls it an "inventive and troubling literary puzzle."
3. I Saw A Man, by Owen Sheers -- "Hitchockian premise..."
4. Dark Corners, by Ruth Rendell -- on the immediate TBR pile
5. Splinter the Silence, by Val McDermid
6. The Shut Eye, by Belinda Bauer
7. The Girl in the Spider's Web, by David Lagercrantz
8. The Dead Joker, by Anne Holt
9. Even Dogs in the Wild, by Ian Rankin
10. Make Me, by Lee Child
11. You Are Dead, by Peter James
12. Rogue Lawyer, by John Grisham
13. Hush Hush, by Laura Lippman
14. The Mulberry Bush, by Charles McCarry
15. Pleasantville, by Attica Locke
16. The Cartel, by Don Winslow
Nesbø's Midnight Sun was also mentioned, although since Lawson referred to it as as "minor exercise," I'm doubtful that it was part of the list. Apologies if I am wrong.
Oh, and do read the comments -- I just this minute discovered someone else didn't care for Girl on the Train!
