Lindsey Davis awarded CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger

27th January 2011

The Crime Writers' Association (CWA) has named Lindsey Davis as the latest recipient of one of its most prestigious honours.

Historical crime novelist Davis will become the 26th author to be given the CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger, which recognises 'outstanding achievement' in the crime fiction genre.

The writer commented: 'The Diamond Dagger is the ultimate accolade for a crime author, because it is given by fellow writers and is not just for one book but your work as a whole over the years.'

CWA chair Tom Harper added that Davis, whose works include The Silver Pigs, Rebels and Traitors, Alexandria and The Accusers, is a 'worthy winner' of the accolade.

The author has won a number of honours over her career, such as the Authors' Club Best First Novel award and the CWA's Dagger in the Library and Ellis Peters Historical Dagger titles.

Last year, the CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger was presented to Val McDermid. Her back catalogue features thrillers such as The Wire in the Blood and A Place of Execution.
