Lee Child to receive Diamond Dagger
08.02.13 | Lisa Campbell
The 2013 Crime Writers’ Association Diamond Dagger will be awarded to Lee Child.
Members of the CWA vote for the Diamond Dagger award-winner, which celebrates an author with an outstanding body of work in crime fiction.
Peter James, chair of the CWA, said: “I am delighted that the CWA has chosen Lee Child as this year's recipient. Lee is one of the few British crime-thriller authors to have become a global brand name; he is also an extremely charming and open person and a tireless promoter of our genre.”
The diamond-studded Dagger will be awarded to Child at a gala dinner in the summer.
