Patrick Eden wins the CWA Debut Dagger for 2010

Patrick Eden has won this year's Debut Dagger, awarded by the Crime Writers' Association for his novel, A Place of Dying. The novel is described as an atmospheric noir tale. The Debut Dagger is open only to authors who have yet to have a novel commercially published. However, the prize often attracts the attention of publishers and we can hope to see Patrick Eden's book in bookshops at some time in the future.

Sandra Graham was also highly commended for her novel, Case No. 1.

The judges' decision was announced at this year's Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate on 23 July. See my post on 15 July for more information about the festival.
