The winner of this year’s Dagger in the Library award will be announced as part of the Bodies from the Library event at London’s British Library on Saturday, June 17.

Previous recipients of the Dagger in the Library include Christopher Fowler, Sharon Bolton, Stephen Booth, Belinda Bauer, Mo Hayder, Peter Robinson, Stuart MacBride, Craig Russel, Alexander McCall Smith, and of course last year’s winner, Elly Griffiths.

My weekly Tuesday Night Book Group has been reading books by the previous winners this Spring. It's been great fun.
