The winners of the 2010 Los Angeles Times Book Prizes were announced this past weekend during the LA Times Festival of Books honoring the best books of 2009. Winners were selected in many categories.
And the winner in the Mystery / Thriller category is:
◊ The Ghosts of Belfast by Stuart Neville (Soho Crime)
The judges said, "Stuart Neville’s stunning debut novel delivers an inspired, gritty view of violence’s aftermath and the toll it takes on each person involved – especially on one haunted, redemption-seeking ex-IRA hitman. Along the way, Neville condenses the fear and hate that has troubled Northern Ireland, still under the thumb of decades of domestic terrorism, for decades."
For a complete list of winners, see the LA Times website.
