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.
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 to share your own by leaving reviews.
Links to where the books can be bought appear on the relevant page if you’d like to buy a copy.
Congratulations to Brian Price for writing the winning review (of Mick Herron’s Spook Street, winner of the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2017) and earning himself a free pass to CrimeFest.
Anyone is welcome to post reviews. The 2018 shortlisted titles will appear in the summer.
