24th Annual LAMBDA Literary Awards

Monday night, the winners were announced for the 24th Annual Lambda Literary Awards. The awards celebrate and promote excellence in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender literature. While awards are given out in 24 categories, I thought I would focus on those featuring the crime genre:

Lesbian Mystery
DYING TO LIVE, by Kim Baldwin & Xenia Alexiou (Bold Strokes Books)

Gay Mystery
RED WHITE BLACK AND BLUE, by Richard Stevenson (MLR Press)
