Independent Mystery Booksellers Association (IMBA)–This Month's Killer Books

As a former indie bookseller, this association’s monthly lists helped me find new authors to recommend and confirmed some of my own choices. As the website states:

“Who better to pick the best mystery books of the month than people who run mystery bookstores?

Each month a rotating editor selects 5 great reads from our member’s newsletters, blogs, and recommendations. Most are recent publications but sometimes something we missed the first time around sneaks in. Every selection is a gem that otherwise might have been lost among the more than 100 mysteries published each month.”

Whoa–over 100? Gee whiz–so many people write crime fiction–and amazingly are published! Pretty cool. Anyhoo, here’s the link to the monthly list–I will try to keep up with sending the link each month in case you forget where to locate the info. I really think this list could help indie bookstores whether mystery or general.
