2011 Thriller Award Winners
Posted by: Keir Graff

The winners of the 2011 Thriller Awards were announced Saturday at a gala banquet in New York City. (And, is there any other kind of award banquet? Does anyone brag about throwing a “modest” award banquet?)  The Booklist handicapping was only partially accurate—but the whole thing wouldn’t be very thrilling if the outcome was easy to predict, now would it?
