Richard Asplin's Conman, Blacklands by Belinda Bauer, S.J. Bolton's Blood Harvest and Rain Gods by James Lee Burke have been shortlisted for the GBP 2,500 prize.

In addition, Shadowplay by Karen Campbell, Patricia Duncker's The Strange Case of the Composer and his Judge, Still Midnight by Denise Mina and George Pelecanos' The Way Home are in the running for the accolade, which is the CWA's top award for crime novels written in English.
