TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A biography of President Dwight Eisenhower, a history of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and novels set in the state and elsewhere are among this year's 15 notable Kansas books.

State Librarian Jo Budler announced the list Monday. It honors books published last year by a Kansas author or on a Kansas topic.

Annual lists began in 2006.

This year's list includes "Beyond Cold Blood," a history of the KBI by former Director Larry Welch. Also honored is "Eisenhower in War and Peace," by Jean Edward Smith.

The novels include "The Yard," by Alex Grecian, about London's murder squad in the late 19th century, and "The Chaperone," by Laura Moriarty, a story of a young actress and her visit to New York.
