Lisa Black

is a finalist for the inaugural Sue Grafton Memorial Award

Lisa’s mystery, PERISH, is a nailbiting journey to the dark side of justice as forensic expert Maggie Gardiner discovers troubling new details about her colleague Jack Renner, a homicide detective with a brutal approach to law and order . . .

Others nominated for the award are Rogue friends Sara Paretsky, Victoria Thompson, Charles Todd, & Jacqueline Winspear.

The Award:  Thirty-five years ago, Sue Grafton launched one of the most acclaimed and celebrated mystery series of all time with A is for Alibi, and with it created the model of the modern female detective with Kinsey Millhone, a feisty, whip-smart woman who is not above breaking the rules to solve a case or save a life.  Like her fictional alter ego, Grafton was a true original, a model for every woman who has ever said the hell with this and struck out on her own independent way.
