Readers & Reviewers
Every year the judges of the Crime Writers’ Association have the great privilege of reading hundreds of entries for our prestigious Dagger Awards – and Dagger Reads showcases the very best of the books we’ve encountered.
Through this exciting literary initiative, we invite you, the avid crime reader, to take a closer look at the Dagger Award contenders and learn more about the books and authors. We also invite you to read the opinions of others and, if you wish, to share your own by leaving reviews.
Reviews can be submitted by any visitor to this website as well as by our CWA and CRA communities. So read reviews or write them – or both – here’s your opportunity.
If you’d simply like to find out which books were shortlisted for the Dagger Awards, and learn a little more about them – here’s your chance.

Once there, you can also choose to read or leave reviews.
