The Crime Writing Association Daggers 2019 Shortlists
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 shortlists feature some of the finest new and established crime fiction and thriller writing.
Boasting formidable new books from titans of the genre such as Donna Leon and CJ Sansom, marvels of international crime from the likes of Hakan Nesser and Keigo Higashino, and barnstorming debuts by Laura Askew and Chris Hammer, this year’s selections are simply to die for.
The winners will be confirmed on Thursday 24 October 2019 at the prestigious Daggers Award ceremony in London.
