2002 CWA's Macallan Dagger Awards
The winners of The Crime Writers' Association (CWA) Macallan Daggers were announced at the Crime Writers' Association The Macallan Awards Lunch, held at the Brewery, Chiswell Street, London on Thursday 7 November 2002.
The Athenian Murders by Jose Carlos Samoza won the 2002 The Gold Dagger. The judges' comment: "Complex, intellectually intriguing Ancient Greek crime. Plays tricks with the rules of detection, time itself, and the reader's expectations. A virtuoso performance."
The Final Country by James Crumley is the runner-up, winning the Silver Dagger. The judges' comment: "A wild, free-wheeling cocaine and bourbon fueled ride through Texas and America's mid west. Labyrinthine plot never fails to grip."
The other shortlisted titles were:
Billingham - Scaredy Cat
Lee Burke - Jolie Blon's Bounce
Connelly - City of Bones
Walters - Acid Row
Overall, the judges' comments were: "The standard as in previous years was extremely high, entries were up on last year, and the judges regretted that they could not have a longer short list. Once again the truly international nature of crime writing is reflected."
