The L.A. Times announced the finalists for the 2015 L.A. Times Book Prizes. The award is presented in 10 categories, including Mystery/Thriller. Since we tend to obsess on all things crime, let us take a look at that particular category.

THE PAINTER BY Peter Heller (Knopf)

AFTER I’M GONE by Laura Lippman (William Morrow)
