Theakston’s Crime Novel Longlist

And in another award that’s in its sophomore year, Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year has announced its 20-strong longlist. Mark Billingham won it last year for LAZYBONES, but he’s not eligible this time around as he’s chairing Harrogate (where the winner will be announced on opening night) and the judging committee. This time the names range from Lindsay Ashford to Andrew Taylor, and you’re invited to vote on who will be included in the shortlist of six.

Congratulations to all those longlisted.
