Anthony Awards shortlists announced

13th May 2011

The shortlists for the 2011 Anthony Awards, recognising the finest mystery books written in the last year, have been announced.

Five books are in contention for the coveted best novel prize, including Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin, which scooped the mystery prize at the recent Los Angeles Times Book Awards.

Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny, Tana French's Faithful Place, The Lock Artist by Steve Hamilton and Laura Lippman's I'd Know You Anywhere complete the shortlist.

The winners of each category, including best first novel, short story and graphic novel, will be announced at the 2011 Bouchercon World Mystery Convention in St Louis, US, on September 18th.

If successful, Louise Penny will become the first author to win the best novel prize in consecutive years, having triumphed at last year's Anthony Awards with The Brutal Telling.

On presenting Penny with the prize, judges described The Brutal Telling as having 'an intricate, almost mythic plot, superb characters and rich, dark humour'.
