The CWA Dagger in the Library, 2009

The CWA Dagger in the Library, 2009"The Dagger in the Library is an annual award, given to "the author of crime fiction whose work is currently giving the greatest enjoyment to library users"; authors are nominated by UK libraries and Readers' Groups and judged by a panel of librarians. As the award emphasises the rĂ´le played by libraries in providing an audience for authors whose careers are developing, nominations should be for authors whose discovery has recently delighted readers (rather than long-standing favourites). The award is given for the body of an author's work, not for an individual title, and those nominated must be alive at the time of the nomination and should preferably be working in Britain"
