2009 Dilys Award Nominees Announced
Finally, award nominees from someone who has a clue. After the dismal Edgar nominations handed out by the Mystery Writers of America, the Dilys nominees were announced today. Each year, the Dilys Award is given by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association to the mystery title that they most enjoyed selling. Previous winners of the Dilys Award include Louise Penny, Val McDermid, Robert Crais, Carl Hiassen, Dennis Lehane, Julia Spencer-Fleming, Jasper Fforde and Colin Cotterill.
Trigger City – Sean Chercover
The Victoria Vanishes – Christopher Fowler
Silent in the Sanctuary – Deanna Raybourn
Child 44 – Tom Rob Smith
Dawn Patrol – Don Winslow
To continue my sarcastic comments: Wow! I’ve actually heard of all of these authors…
Congratulations to the nominees!
