The British Crime Writers' Association announced the Longlist for the 2013 Dagger in the Library Award. This Dagger is given “not for an individual book but for the author’s body of work.” A shortlist of finalists will be selected and announced on May 31 during CrimeFest in Bristol, England. The winner will be announced at the CWA Daggers Gala Dinner July 15.
