The list of nominees for this year’s Agatha awards is now up on the Malice Domestic web site.
Malice, which takes place in Bethesda the first weekend in May, celebrates “the traditional mystery,” and Dreaming Spies is one of the attendees’ top choices for “Best Historical Mystery.” This is a great honor–I mean, just look at the others in just this one category:
Best Historical Novel:
Malice at the Palace, Rhys Bowen (Berkley)
The Masque of a Murderer, Susanna Calkins (Minotaur Books)
Dreaming Spies, Laurie R. King (Bantam)
Mrs. Roosevelt’s Confidante, Susan Elia Macneal (Banntam)
Murder on Amsterdam Avenue, Victoria Thompson (Berkley)
Voting takes place during the conference. The entire list of nominations, offering a lot of weeks of great traditional crime stories, is here.
