Mystery & Crime Fiction Blog Carnival - November 2011

It is the first Monday of the month - time for another highly anticipated Blog Carnival.   We have had our first good snow, but it quickly melted. Thoughts are turning to Thanksgiving here in little old Colorado. I am considering my traditional favorites, the green bean casserole and the usual round up. Anyway, back to the carnival, below is the line-up.  Click on the title or author's name to go to that link.
