Write On Author Sandi Ault Wins Award

On December 9, 2008 Library Journal named Sandi Ault's WILD INFERNO one of its Best Books of the Year, the second Best of 2008 list on which the novel has placed. WILD INFERNO was one of only five mysteries that made the prestigious list. Founded in 1876, LP is a premier trade journal for librarians and has the highest circulation of any librarianship journal. Its “Library Journal Book Review” publishes prepublication and new book reviews. LJ together with the other major insider publication, Publishers Weekly, gave WILD INFERNO a pair of starred reviews. In November, 2008 PW placed WILD INFERNO on its Best Books of the Year list and listed it as one of only nine in the mystery genre.

Ault also received starred reviews from both for her first novel, WILD INDIGO, which received critical acclaim with the media as well as the prestigious Mary Higgins Clark – Edgar award, which was the first time a debut novel had received this award.

WILD INFERNO is Ms. Ault’s second addition to the WILD mystery series, which again features rough and ready Bureau of Land Management agent Jamaica Wild and her memorable pet wolf, Mountain. The setting of this second book is in the midst of a blazing wildfire while Native Americans are performing sacred ceremony at Chimney Rock. Jamaica’s task is to keep them safe while her life is threatened both by man and fire. Now listed as one of the Best Books of the Year for 2008 by both Library Journal and Publishers Weekly, it is a must read. Both books are published by Berkley Prime Crime/Penguin USA and are available at booksellers everywhere.
