The Crime Readers' Association

CWA Dagger Longlists

15th June 2015

The Crime Writers’ Association are delighted to reveal the long listed authors for the CWA Goldsboro Gold Dagger, the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger and the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger.
The results were revealed mid-way through National Crime Reading Month and the shortlists will be unveiled at the Dagger Awards dinner on 30th June 2015. Tickets for the Dagger Awards – which will be held at Hotel Russell in London – are now on sale.

“Our judges have had a wonderful time reading all these brilliant books,” says CWA chair Len Tyler. “What a year for crime fiction. These long lists are a great demonstration of how diverse and fascinating the genre is right now. No wonder it’s the most popular type of fiction with UK readers.”

The CWA Goldsboro Gold, CWA John Creasy (New Blood) and CWA Ian Fleming Steel Daggers will be presented to the winners at a ceremony in the autumn. Full details will be announced in due course.
