Hitchcock’s Winning Hand

Washington, D.C., author Jane Stanton Hitchcock will be given the 2019 Dashiell Hammett Prize for Literary Excellence in Crime Writing for her comic crime novel, Bluff (Poisoned Pen Press). Where that presentation will be made is still to be decided.

The Hammett Prize is bestowed annually by the North American Branch of the International Association of Crime Writers. Also vying for the 2019 award were The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols, by Nicholas Meyer (St. Martin’s Press); Blood Relations, by Jonathan Moore (Mariner); The Murals, by William Bayer (Severn House); and Norco ’80: The True Story of the Most Spectacular Bank Robbery in American History, by Peter Houlahan (Counterpoint Press).
