I was really struck by how much people liked Scott Phillips' book, Cottonwood. I definitely want to read that one. (I really enjoyed his first book, The Ice Harvest.)

Aldo

David,
You need to read COTTONWOOD. Scott is one of the finest authors around and not only is he a great story teller but the research that goes into the books is amazing.

Aldo

Here is my list:
In no particular order:
COTTONWOOD by Scott Phillips.
RED JUNGLE by Kent Harrington - a true masterpiece
TWO-WAY SPLIT - Al Guthrie
THE BIG BLIND - Ray Banks
SECRET DEAD MEN - Duane Swierczynski
CHEAPSKATES - Charlie Stella
EARTHQUAKE WEATHER - TErrill Lankford
MONKOLOGY - Gary Phillips
Anything by Bruen
CASE HISTORIES - KATE ATKINSON

Bryon

People really liked "Whiskey Sour?" Wow...I didn't see that coming.

Laura

I couldn't get my act together to contribute to David's list -- too brain-dead after completing revisions on #10 -- but I think it's a great approach. I jotted down lots of things I've been meaning to read (Drummond chief among them, but also the Thornburgh, as I've read only Cutter and Bone). Asking writers to talk about books they love has a nice karmic energy.

David Montgomery

Bryon, you didn't like Whiskey Sour? I enjoyed it; thought it was nicely done for a first novel. I wasn't totally convinced of the juxtapositioning of elements, but Joe did a pretty smooth job of pulling it off.

It didn't make my Top 5 overall, but would probably squeeze into my Top 5 debut. (There were actually several strong debuts this year... more than usual, it seems.)
