Have not read a single one of these but have read other books by several of them. Not enough to vote though.

I've got several on my TBR list and few even in the TBR pile, reminding me once again of how far behind I am in my reading. After some criticism about a masculine bias in some of the other crime fiction awards, "The Guardian" was quick to note that 1/3 of the Theakston list are books by female authors. Ian Rankin Tweeted a note asking folks "Are you sure it is good practice to favour one particular author who has been longlisted for the Theakston Prize by RTing?" (adding -- what if they don't have a Twitter account), which brings up interesting issues about 100% adjudicated vs. popularity-poll type contests, too. Lots of fodder for heated discussions...
