Deaver's leaves bodies behind him at ITW awards

4th August 2009

Jeffrey Deaver's The Bodies Left Behind has won the Best Thriller of the Year award at this year's International Thriller Writers (ITW) ceremony.

The Stone Monkey author's novel focuses on strange goings on in a small US town in Wisconsin, where a woman ends up embroiled in a cat and mouse murder plan in which she is the intended victim.

Mr Deaver's book will not be available for purchase in the UK until October this year.

Other contenders for the award that narrowly missed out on the Best Thriller of the Year prize were Harlan Coben for Hold Tight and Andrew Gross' The Dark Tide.

Another Jeffrey Deaver novel, The Broken Window, was also nominated for the same award.

Jeffrey Deaver is a former journalist, folk singer and lawyer whose books have sold in 150 countries.

He has written 25 novels and two collections of short stories and has been awarded the Steel Dagger and Short Story Dagger accolades by the British Crime Writers' Association, in addition to several other prizes.
