Congratulations to everyone who was shortlisted for the CWA Dagger awards held last night at the Grange City Hotel! Ann Cleeves was a popular and worthy winner of the Diamond Dagger, and the excellent Barry Forshaw was honoured with a well-deserved Red Herring for his services to crime-writing.

Special thanks to Robert Thorogood, creator of Death in Paradise, for his highly entertaining guest speech.
The event was extremely well-attended by some of the brightest stars in crime-writing, publishing and literary agencies, and it was a great delight to welcome two special guests, Brenda Blethyn and Peter Capaldi.
