Philip Kerr Wins Ellis Peters Award

Philip Kerr, one of my favorite historical crime writers, won the Ellis Peters Historical Award, given out by the British Crime Writers’ Association, for his 2009 Bernie Gunther novel, If the Dead Rise Not (Quercus).

Also nominated for this year’s award: The Dead of Winter, by Rennie Airth (Macmillan); The Redemption of Alexander Seaton, by Shona MacLean (Quercus); The Information Officer, by Mark Mills (HarperCollins); The Interrogator, by Andrew Williams (John Murray); and An Empty Death, by Laura Wilson (Orion).

In September, Philip Kerr won the RBA International Award for Crime Writing. It's a good year for Philip Kerr.
