Awards: CWA Dagger Winners

The winners in a dozen categories of the Crime Writers' Association 2024 Dagger Awards were announced July 4 and can be seen here. Among them, the Gold Dagger for Best Crime Novel of the Year went to Una Mannion for Tell Me What I Am and the ILP John Creasey New Blood Dagger was won by Jo Callaghan for In the Blink of an Eye. Lynda LaPlante and James Lee Burke received the Diamond Dagger for Lifetime Achievement in Crime Writing.  

Maxim Jakubowski, chair of the Daggers committee, commented: "Yet another remarkable year of crime writing in which our impartial judges have uncovered a crop of wonderful books. In a year in which many of our 'big beasts' had new books, it's refreshing to see so many new names and talents winning. And a momentous occasion for independent publishers who have swooped on the majority of the awards and, in particular, Faber & Faber, who have achieved a rare double of Gold and Steel Daggers."
