Touting Irish Talents

I must have missed spotting the announcement recently of which works and authors were shortlisted for the 2017 Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards. Fortunately, In Reference to Murder’s B.V. Lawson claims sharper eyes, and yesterday she posted the list of finalists for the Irish Independent Crime Fiction Book of the Year as follows:

Can You Keep A Secret? by Karen Perry (Michael Joseph)
Here and Gone, by Haylen Beck (Harvill Secker)
Let the Dead Speak, by Jane Casey (HarperCollins)
One Bad Turn, by Sinéad Crowley (Quercus)
There Was a Crooked Man, by Cat Hogan (Poolbeg Press)
The Therapy House, by Julie Parsons (New Island)

You can see all of this year’s Irish Book Award nominees, in 13 categories, by clicking here. Winners are to be announced during a black-tie dinner at Dublin’s Clayton Hotel on November 28.
