Nominee for Edgar Award from St. Paul

William Kent Krueger, author of "Ordinary Grace," is in the running for the award of best novel in The Edgar Awards. A St. Paul resident, though not originally, Krueger has as many as 15 novels under his belt and has received many praises ranging from being a New York Times Bestseller to winning the Midwest Booksellers Choice Awards for Best Fiction.

Nominees were announced on Sunday, January 19, which also happened to be Edgar Allen Poe's 205th birthday. Poe, the obvious namesake of the award, was an accomplished writer with many published works under his belt.

"Ordinary Grace," a novel of mystery and thrills, is about a thirteen-year-old boy's summer full of secrets and death, told from his perspective forty years later. What should be a coming of age for this young man becomes a fast forward into adulthood and a reality no one expects.

The Mystery Writers of America present the winners on May 1, 2014 in New York City at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. However, if you want to see Krueger in action before then, he will be at the Rockford Public Library in Rockford, Minnesota on February 1 at 11:00 a.m. with the Minnesota Crime Wave.
