Susan Hill, Belinda Bauer and Peter May are among the shortlistees for the Crime Writers Association’s Dagger in the Library award, while Jo Nesbo, Misha Glenny and debut author Jon Breakfield are all up for prizes.
Also in the running for the Dagger in the Library prize, sponsored by Random House, are Steve Mosby, Imogen Robertson and S J Bolton. The award is nominated by library users and chosen by a panel of librarians, celebrating an author’s body of work.
CWA chair Peter James said: “The Crime Writers’ Association Daggers are the most coveted of all awards in the UK crime writing calendar and this year’s shortlist entries have all been of an exceptionally high standard. I’m delighted to see that the world of quality crime writing is thriving in our new electronic age.”
The winners of the awards will be annouced at the CWA Awards on 5th July, alongside the longlists for the Gold, Steel and John Creasey categories. Frederick Forsyth will be awarded the CWA Diamond Dagger.
