International Thriller Writers Announce 2012 Thriller Award Nominees

These are among my favorite award nominee lists since there are no genre distinctions here.  All that is required is that the book is suspenseful.  In their own words:
The International Thriller Writers is an honorary society of authors, both fiction and nonfiction, who write books broadly classified as “thrillers.” This would include (but isn’t limited to) such subjects as murder mystery, detective, suspense, horror, supernatural, action, espionage, true crime, war, adventure, and myriad similar subject areas.
See for yourself.  Via Criminal Element:

The International Thriller Writers has announced the finalists for the 2012 Thriller Awards.  The winners will be announced at ThrillerFest VI on July 14, 2012.
