Michael Connelly Wins the Diamond Dagger Award

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

The Dagger Awards, presented by the UK's Crime Writers' Association, recognize excellence in crime and mystery writing in a wide range of cateogories, from first novels to translations.  The association's highest honor, however, is the Diamond Dagger, which is given to a writer "whose crime writing careers have been marked by sustained excellence, and who have made a significant contribution to the genre."  This year's winner is Michael Connelly!

Martin Edwards, Chair of the CWA, said: "Michael Connelly’s crime novels have won international acclaim for more than a quarter century, and have given readers, television viewers, and film fans rich entertainment. A combination of wonderful characters, vivid settings, and gripping storylines characterises his work. The CWA is delighted to celebrate his achievements with the award of the Diamond Dagger."

Though Connelly is an American author, his books have long been published in the UK.  Other Americans to earn the Diamond Dagger Award include Lawrence Block, Elmore Leonard, and Sue Grafton.
