Knopf Nabs Nero

Connecticut author Chris Knopf has won the 2013 Nero Award for his standalone novel Dead Anyway (Permanent Press). He’ll receive his prize on December 7 of this year, during the Nero Wolfe Society’s annual Black Orchid Banquet.

Also in contention for the 2013 Nero were Antiques Disposal, by Barbara Allan (aka Max Allan Collins and his wife, Barbara; Kensington); Burning Midnight, by Loren D. Estleman (Forge); and The Truth of All Things, by Kieran Shields (Crown).
