Robinson Comes Out on Top Again

Tonight’s opening festivities at the Left Coast Crime convention in Colorado Springs, Colorado, included the announcement that British-born Canadian novelist Peter Robinson has captured this year’s Dilys Award for his 2012 standalone novel, Before the Poison (Morrow). The Dilys is presented by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association (IMBA) to “the mystery title of the year which the member booksellers have most enjoyed selling.”

Also nominated for this commendation were Grandad, There’s a Head on the Beach, by Colin Cotterill (Minotaur); Broken Harbor, by Tana French (Viking); Mr. Churchill’s Secretary, by Susan Elia MacNeal (Bantam); and The Expats, by Chris Pavone (Crown).

Left Coast Crime will continue through this coming Sunday, March 25, and include the presentation of four more literary prizes.
