Gene Kerrigan’s The Rage (Vintage) has won the Crime Writers Association (CWA) Gold Dagger for Best Crime Novel of the Year (sponsored by Constable & Robinson) at the Specsavers Crime Thriller Awards 2012, taking home £2,500.
The CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for Best Thriller, sponsored by Ian Fleming Publications, went to Charles Cumming for A Foreign Country (HarperCollins) while the CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger, sponsored by Goldsboro Books, went to Wiley Cash for A Land More Kind than Home (Doubleday).
Kathy Reichs was awarded the Specsaver's Bestseller Dagger 2012.
The awards took place last night (18th October). Cactus TV’s Amanda Ross, creator and executive producer of the awards, said: “This has been a fantastic year for the genre, and it was great to see so many star authors and actors at the event.”
Guests who attended the event included Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Rupert Penry-Jones and Steven Berkoff.
