The Crime Writers’ Association 2009 Dagger Awards

On October 21st, Britain’s gala televised event, ITV3′s Crime Thriller Awards, saw the presentation of The Crime Writers’ Association’s Dagger Awards.  The CWA Daggers have been awarded since 1955 for excellence in crime fiction and their index to past winners reads like a Who’s Who of Page-turners.

This year’s Gold Dagger was presented to William Broderick for A WHISPERED NAME.

The Ian Fleming Steel Dagger went to friend-of-AuthorScoop’s John Hart for THE LAST CHILD

And the New Blood Dagger saw Johan Theorin take home the John Creasy prize for ECHOES FROM THE DEAD.

Congratulations all!
