Speaking of good crime reads for the summer, The Guardian reports that Lee Child won the 2011 Theakstons Old Peculier crime novel of the year award for 61 Hours, Child's 14th mystery book featuring protagonist Jack Reacher. The award is given each year in the United Kingdom.
61 Hours was a good read. It is a good choice for a summer vacation or beach book. If, however, you've already read it, check out the other titles that were shortlisted for this year's Theakstons Old Peculier award:
From the Dead
Dark Blood (Logan McRae)
The Holy Thief: A Novel
The Anatomy of Ghosts
The 2010 winner: A Simple Act of Violence by R.J. Ellory.
