The Crime Writers’ Association

Hall of Fame

Our Diamond Dagger winners over the decades comprise a very impressive Hall of Fame, showcasing the authors who have consistently brought us superlative crime writing in the English language. Here we’ve collected exclusive information about a number of those writers to give you an insight into their lives, their writing and their careers – and what the Diamond Dagger means to them.
