Cutting Down the Daggers

From a slightly longer shortlist of contenders, the British Crime Writers’ Association (CWA) and its corporate partners, Specsavers, Cactus TV and ITV3, have now announced the four finalists in each category for the 2010 Gold, Steel, and John Creasey Dagger Awards:

CWA Gold Dagger 2010:
Blacklands, by Belinda Bauer (Corgi)
Blood Harvest, by S.J. Bolton (Bantam Press)
Shadowplay, by Karen Campbell (Hodder & Stoughton)
The Way Home, by George Pelecanos (Orion)

CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2010 (sponsored by Ian Fleming Publications Ltd.):
A Loyal Spy, by Simon Conway (Hodder & Stoughton)
The Dying Light, by Henry Porter (Orion)
Innocent, by Scott Turow (Macmillan)
The Gentlemen’s Hour, by Don Winslow (Heinemann)

CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger 2010:
Acts of Violence, by Ryan David Jahn (Pan)
The Pull of the Moon, by Diane Janes (Robinson)
Rupture, by Simon Lelic (Picador)
The Holy Thief, by William Ryan (Mantle)

You’ll have to wait until Friday, October 8, for a pronouncement of who has won these commendations. A special awards ceremony that night at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel will be filmed, and then televised on ITV3 the following week.
