CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger Speculation (2012)

My fellow crime blogger, crimeficreader, at It's a Crime!, is one of the judges for the CWA John Creasey Dagger so I thought I would try and provide a similar, though not as comprehensive sadly as my International Dagger eligibles, list of eligibles for this dagger.

The criteria for eligibility is (from the CWA's website):

This award is for the best crime novel by a first-time author of any nationality first published in the UK in English during the Judging Period. ‘Best crime novel by a first time author’ means that the author must not have had a novel of any sort published before under any name whatsoever. In the case of novels with more than one author, all the authors must meet this requirement.
(The Judging Period runs from June 1, 2011 to May 31, 2012 inclusive. )

If Turn of Mind by LaPlante is eligible it is hard to think of a book that could better it, though there are many I haven't read on this longlist. Of the European ones that I have read, mostly translated, there are some very good candidates, I think. I've read a few of the English language ones and have not been too impressed - apart from Anya Lipska's which may not be eligible as it is self-published in the UK.

Anyway, it's a great list, Karen, thank you. I'll definitely be mining it!
