Vincent Bugliosi's Reclaiming History Claims Best True Crime Edgar Award

In what should come as no surprise, Vincent Bugliosi's 1,600 page tome Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy was selected as the winner of the 2007 Edgar Award for Best Fact Crime book.

Check out the list of winners (mainly mystery authors) at Publisher's Weekly here. Last night's event was hosted by DEA producer Al Roker.

Congratulations to Mr. Bugliosi. I was honored to have my book, Strangler, shortlisted for the award as well. It was especially gratifying because I blame Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry's Helter Skelter for corrupting me at age nine and sending down the path of true crime writing.

Now, if we can convince the Mystery Writers of America to change the category to Best True Crime book, everyone would be happy.
