Ngaio Marsh Award Longlist

Craig Sisterston (Crime Watch) has announced the longlist for the Ngaio Marsh Award for Best New Zealand Crime Novel. On Saturday, 30 August, the fifth recipient of the Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Crime Novel will be announced following the Great New Zealand Crime Debate event at the WORD Christchurch Writers & Readers Festival 2014.

The shortlist for the Ngaio Marsh Award will be announced in August. However, Craig thought it would be good to announce the 8 books on the longlist. They're all so good in so many very different ways.

So here is the official announcement of the eight longlisted titles for the 2014 Ngaio Marsh Award:

  • THE LUMINARIES by Eleanor Catton
  • JOE VICTIM by Paul Cleave
  • THE BECKONING ICE by Joan Druett
  • FREDERICK'S COAT by Alan Duff
  • MY BROTHER'S KEEPER by Donna Malane
  • WHERE DEAD MEN GO by Liam McIlvanney
  • CROSS FINGERS by Paddy Richardson
  • ONLY THE DEAD by Ben Sanders
