Stephen Usery interviews authors of mysteries, thrillers, and crime fiction.

The nominees for the 2014 Edgar Awards were recently announced. I was lucky enough to interview four writers on the short lists last year.

Jenny Milchman was nominated for the Mary Higgins Clark Prize for her novel Cover of Snow.

Marcus Sakey was nominated for Best Paperback Original for his thriller Brilliance.

Charles Graeber got a nom for Best Fact Crime for The Good Nurse.

And finally, Matthew Guinn was nominated for Best First Novel for The Resurrectionist. I had the chance to talk to Matthew last summer for my other program Book Talk. The Resurrectionist is the story of a slave in the 1850s ordered to steal other slaves' corpses for dissection for a South Carolina medical school, and the parallel storyline of a 1990s doctor who learns of the past misdeeds which jeopardize his school's reputation.
