In Need of Neddies

This summer has already been busy with announcements of crime-fiction prize recipients. Now comes the Australian Crime Writers Association with its shortlisted nominees for the 2021 Ned Kelly Awards. There are four categories of contenders, led by those seeking Best Crime Fiction of the year honors:

Consolation, by Garry Disher (Text)
Gathering Dark, by Candice Fox
(Penguin Random House)
A Testament of Character, by Sulari
Gentill (Pantera Press)
The Survivors, by Jane Harper
(Pan Macmillan)
The Good Turn, by Dervla McTiernan (HarperCollins)
Tell Me Lies, by J.P. Pomare (Hachette)
When She Was Good, by Michael Robotham (Hachette)
White Throat, by Sarah Thornton (Text)

The three remaining sets of books vying for this year’s “Neddies” can be found here. Sources say we can expect news of which novels and authors have won to come sometime in August.
