Dirt Town long-listed for a 2023 CWA Dagger

Very pleased to say that the U.K. edition of DIRT TOWN has made the longlist for the Crime Writers’ Association ILP John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger award!

“This Dagger is for the best crime novel by a first-time author of any nationality with their first novel of any kind published in the UK in English during the judging period. “

Past winners of this award include Chris Hammer and Eloísa Díaz. The CWA Daggers are inarguably one of the most prestigious crime fiction awards, and I feel the honour of this longlisting. Huge congratulations to my fellow long-listees, and a big thank-you to the Crime Writers’ Association, and my wonderful U.K. publisher, Pan Macmillan.
