The Crime Writing Association Daggers 2019 Longlists

Holding a candle up to the cloak and dagger world of contemporary crime writing, the Crime Writing Association Daggers celebrate the best of the genre. Across eight categories, this year’s longlists feature some of the finest new and established crime fiction and thriller writing. Including Belinda Bauer’s Man Booker Prize-longlisted Snap and Luke Jennings' Killing Eve series inspiration, as well as a host of debut talent, it’s an impressive line-up.

Shortlists will be announced in the summer, and the winners will be confirmed on 24 October 2019 at the prestigious Daggers Award ceremony in London.
