The eight novels in competition for the Crime Writers' Association (CWA) Gold Dagger award have been named at the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival.

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.

The organisation also unveiled the shortlists for its John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger and Ian Fleming Steel Dagger awards, which saw authors such as Lee Child, Mick Herron and Scott Turow pick up nominations.

CWA chairman Tom Harper commented: 'The CWA Dagger Awards have always enjoyed huge prestige among crime fiction fans and authors. The shortlists this year are incredibly strong, from exciting new talents to established masters, all working at the top of their game.'
