S.J. Bolton wins Mary Higgins Clark Award

30th April 2010

S.J. Bolton has won the 2010 Mary Higgins Clark Award, after missing out on the honour last year.

In 2009, the crime writer was shortlisted for the prize, which is part of the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar Allen Poe Awards, with debut novel Sacrifice but was pipped to the post by Bill Floyd with The Killer's Wife.

However, Bolton's second book, Awakening, won this year's award, which is open to thriller novels that feature young women involved in extraordinary situations.

The author commented: 'I am thrilled and honoured that readers in the US like Awakening and very grateful to the Mystery Writers of America, and to Ms Higgins Clark herself, for their support.'

Other works on the shortlist included Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof by Blaize Clement, Hallie Ephron's Never Tell A Lie, Lethal Vintage by Nadia Gordon and Susan Kandel's Dial H for Hitchcock.

The award was founded in honour of US thriller author Mary Higgins Clark, who has published books such as I Heard That Song Before and You Belong to Me.
