Bouchercon 2014 in Long Beach is roughly a month and a half away. Since the Anthony Awards will be presented at the conference, I thought it might be a good idea to re-run my reviews of those nominated titles which have been highlighted here on BOLO Books. I hope to update this list with a few more reviews before November, but in the meantime, I hope these reviews might encourage you to check out these novels. For a complete list of the nominees, see the Anthony Award Nominations 2014 post.  If you are going to Bouchercon, don’t forget to vote!
