Friend and fellow mystery author Steve Ulfelder’s debut mystery, Purgatory Chasm, was nominated for an Edgar Award for Best First Mystery. The winners were announced tonight, and while Steve didn’t take the prize, I’d like to offer my heartfelt congratulations to him on his nomination. Purgatory Chasm is a superb novel, a definite must-read.

Cheers to you, Steve. And congratulations to all the nominees and winners.
