More Award Predictions: First Novels and Paperback Originals

I’m pulling for Marcus Sakey’s The Blade Itself and Brett Battles’ The Cleaner to win awards at Boucheron.  They were two of the most enjoyable books I read this year.  Good luck to them both!

MY PREDICTIONS:

Barry First Novel:
THE BLADE ITSELF, Marcus Sakey

Barry Paperback Original:
QUEENPIN, Megan Abbott

Shamus First Novel:
THE CLEANER, Brett Battles

Shamus Paperback Original:
BLOOD OF PARADISE, David Corbett

Anthony First Novel:
THE BLADE ITSELF, Marcus Sakey

Anthony Paperback Original:
BLOOD OF PARADISE, David Corbett

Macavity First Novel:
THE BETHLEHEM MURDERS, Matt Beynon Rees

In previous posts, I’ve listed the Anthony nominees and Shamus nominees.

Who do you think will win?  What do you think about these books?
