Many congratulations to these fine authors.

From the CWA site:
Unlike most other literary prizes, the Dagger in the Library is awarded not for an individual book but for the author’s body of work … The nominated authors must be alive, preferably working in Britain and cannot have won the award before. As the award is for a body of work, authors should have published at least three books. Entries from reading groups or individuals are submitted through libraries. Nomination forms may be downloaded by clicking the links at the top of the right-hand column. Groups who nominated the winning author will be entered into a draw for £300 to be spent on books.
