EL GAVILAN finished fourth in a field of 21 American titles over at the House of Crime and Mystery's 2012 Readers Choice Awards.

(The awards were divided into several geographic divisions; overall winner worldwide was Gillian Flynn and GONE GIRL).

In the U.S. section, EL GAVILAN trailed Flynn, Dennis Lehane (LIVE BY NIGHT), and Michael Connelly (THE DROP). Along with EL GAVILAN, Chris Holm's DEAD HARVEST rounded out the top five on the U.S side of competition.

Thank you to all the readers who took the time to vote (for EL GAVILAN or otherwise) and your continued support of authors everywhere.

EL GAVILAN also made several year's best lists this year, including a very nice appreciation at January Magazine, which can be found here.
