Bouchercon 2017 was held in Toronto, Canada and I'm still enjoying a few extra days there, but here are two highlights from the week:
Here is our panel discussing crime novels set on the coasts. From the left are Ryan Aldred (mysteries set in Costa Rica), Baron Birtcher (Hawaii), David Burnsworth (Charleston SC), Michele Dorsey (US Virgin Islands), and Mike Martin (Newfoundland). They each had interesting observations about coastal settings, character, and crime. They made my moderating job easy.
Another highlight was Canadian bestselling author Louise Penny. I snapped this right after she won the Anthony Award for best mystery, for her book A GREAT RECK0NING.
