Robert Richardson

A long-time newspaper journalist, Robert Richardson began his writing career with The Latimer Mercy – later retitled An Act of Evil – which won the CWA John Creasey Dagger for the year’s best first crime novel.

 

Five more books featuring Augustus Maltravers (‘a true original’ according to PD James) and his partner, actress Tess Davy, followed before Robert turned to psychological novels with The Hand of Strange Children – nominated for the CWA Gold Dagger – Significant Others and Victims. Many have been republished in recent years by Lume Books.

 

Robert has twice been Chair of the CWA, a unique distinction, and a judge for the Gold Dagger for Non-fiction.
