Hello all from sweltering Dallas, TX. I've been lurking -- while melting -- instead of posting lately.

I didn't notice much discussion of Edgar-winner MR. WHITE'S CONFESSION on this list (forgive me if I missed the posts). I just finished it and I think it deserved the award. It's a terrific literary mystery and I think it deserves discussion on this list. It is not quite as hardboiled as many of my favorites, but it certainly fits most definitions of noir I know about. And for pure, sweet fiction writing I haven't read much this year that matches it. Would love to hear some thoughts.

Best, David
