N.C.'s John Hart is up for another Edgar Award

Three novels, three nominations for the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar Award -- the Oscars of the mystery genre.

That's an impressive track record for Greensboro's John Hart, whose third novel, "The Last Child," was recently nominated for an Edgar for best novel. Hart, who graduated from Davidson College, won an Edgar for his second novel, "Down River." His first book, "The King of Lies," was also nominated.

The awards, named for Edgar Allan Poe, will be announced in late April. Check out the full list of nominees here.
