2007 CWA Dagger Awards Short Lists

The short lists for the 2007 CWA Dagger Awards have been announced and amongst the nominees are a couple of Australian authors.

Vying for the Duncan Lawrie Dagger (formerly the CWA Gold Dagger for Fiction) is Ned Kelly winning The Broken Shore by Peter Temple while Michael Robotham - The Night Ferry has been nominated for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger which is awarded to the best adventure / thriller novel in the vein of James Bond. Congratulations and good luck to both of them.

The CWA Dagger Awards will be presented on Thursday, 5th July at the Four Seasons Hotel, Park Lane (which is right next to Mayfair, I believe).
