Six to choose from ...

The shortlists for the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards 2011 have been announced. The shortlist for the Ireland AM Crime Fiction Award is:

A Death in Summer by Benjamin Black
Absolute Zero Cool by Declan Burke

The Reckoning by Jane Casey
Bloodland by Alan Glynn
Taboo by Casey Hill

The Bloody Meadow by William Ryan

You can vote for your favourite book by clicking on the image above. I've only read Absolute Zero Cool and Bloodland, so far. I've made a start on The Bloody Meadow. I'm a little surprised that Gene Kerrigan's The Rage didn't make the shortlist, but as Declan Burke notes over on Crime Always Pays, 2011 was a bumper year of quality Irish crime fiction.
