2016 Top Reads - U.S. Crime Thriller Novels

Further to my post of December 17, 2016 (in which I listed my "2016 Top Reads: U.K. Crime Thriller Novels")  this post focuses on my "2016 Top Reads" U.S. Crime Thriller Novels. I have grouped books in my own fashion, alphabetically, and when possible, by the same publisher. There are debuts, stand-alone novels, a books which are part of a series. I did review the last two titles in the post, and hope you will read my reviews. 

This is not a "Best Books of 2016" list. My passion for the crime thriller genre is enormous. I hope you like my choices, and I encourage you to buy these titles, and support writers and publishers so more books may be written and published! 

If you click on a title, that will take you to its listing.  When you click on the author and/or the publisher, that will take you to their Twitter account.

Also, since this is my blog, I have added a title which I should have appeared in my  2016 Top Reads - U.K. Crime Thriller Novels list.  That title is OPEN WOUNDS by Douglas Skelton,which Luath Press published in the U.K. back on March 31, 2016.  However, the book was published here in the U.S. on September 30, 2016, and was nominated for the 2016 McIlvanney Prize (Scottish Crime Book of the Year Award).  And so, once again....
