I am so happy to announce that A FATAL WINTER is a Library Journal pick as one of the best mysteries of 2012. "Malliet's artfully plotted puzzler subtly dazzles with its sly humor and astute observations."
Below is the entire list of five books. Congratulations, fellow authors--I know you're as thrilled as I am!
Box, C.J. Force of Nature: A Joe Pickett Novel. Putnam.
Locke, Attica. The Cutting Season. Harper: HarperCollins.
Malliet, G.M. A Fatal Winter: A Max Tudor Novel. Minotaur: St. Martin’s.

Terry Jacobsen of Library Journal has just published her verdict, giving A FATAL WINTER a starred review: "Malliet doesn't miss a step in her stellar second case for her handsome vicar....This series shines for its wit, well-drawn characters, pitch-perfect dialog, and intricately structured puzzle."
What can I say but thank you?
Library Journal recommends the third St. Just, Death at the Alma Mater, for Golden Age British mystery fans. Even better, they predict that traditional mysteries are making a comeback. Thank you, LJ!
And Booklist's Judy Coon gave it a starred review!
"The reader who hasn’t yet discovered Malliet's St. Just Mystery series has a real treat in store....Longtime cozy fans will be reminded of Golden Age classics starring Dorothy Sayers' Harriet Vane and Edmund Crispin's Gervase Fen. Malliet’s writing is both smooth and elegant and her humor delicious."
