Andrew Taylor Wins 2009 Cartier Diamond Dagger

The Crime Writers’ Association announced that their annual award “for sustained excellence in crime writing” for 2009 goes to Andrew Taylor. Among Taylor’s many fine novels are the Lydmouth series, the Roth trilogy, THE AMERICAN BOY (a Richard & Judy pick), and most recently, BLEEDING HEART SQUARE. He’ll be given the award at a special presentation in London on May 6, and I must say this is a very good choice indeed for the Cartier. Congratulations!
