I am thrilled by this honor, and humbled by the support you and your readers have shown for SUSPECT. This Barry — naming SUSPECT as the Best Mystery Novel of the Decade — means the world to me. It truly does, George. As Maggie touched your heart, you have touched mine. So . . . thank you.
Here’s a picture of me and the Barry here in my office, where Maggie was born and the novel was written.
One future day, when the covid is behind us, I hope to see you at Bouchercon or some other gathering of our mystery tribe. I’d like to shake your hand.
A Bob Crais Thank You
