Allegheny County is becoming a favorite location for Mystery Writers of America, the national organization representing crime authors.
North Side resident Kathleen George yesterday was nominated for an Edgar Award for writing the best mystery of 2009, "The Odds," set in, of all places, the North Side. The professor of theater arts at the University of Pittsburgh was one of six nominated for the best book award.
Her other crime novels are "Taken," "Fallen" and "Afterimage."
Last month the writers' group honored Mystery Lovers Bookshop of Oakmont with a Raven Award for "outstanding achievement in the mystery field outside the realm of creative writing."
The awards ceremony will be April 29 in New York.
