Edgar Award Winners Announced

The Edgar Awards ended, fittingly, much like an Agatha Christie novel: the suspects  gathered in the parlor (the Grand Hyatt hotel at Grand Central Station) in black tie and finally learned whodunit . . . won the award, that is.  No word yet on whether anyone made one last, desperate attempt to flee before getting caught. Congratulations to the winners!
