Child Grabs a Dagger

The Crime Writers’ Association has chosen to give its 2013 Diamond Dagger Award to British-born thriller writer Lee Child.

Child (born Jim Grant) is, of course, the author of the best-selling Jack Reacher series, the most recent entry in which is A Wanted Man. He will receive his prize during an event this coming summer.

CWA chair Peter James says he’s delighted that his organization’s members chose to honor Child’s body of work in this way, adding: “Lee is one of the few British crime thriller authors to have become a global brand name; he is also an extremely charming and open person and a tireless promoter of our genre.”
