Readers, we salute you. This year thousands of you nominated your favourite books and authors for the Dead Good Reader Awards, and we’re thrilled to now be able to unveil your shortlists!
The shortlists are compiled of those authors who received the most nominations in each category. Now the power is back in your hands – it’s time to pick your winners. Does Helen Grace or Ruth Galloway get your vote for favourite fearless female? Is Ian Rankin or James Oswald your go-to for a cracking police procedural? And which book would you recommend above all others?
Have your say and let us know who you think should take home the gongs at the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate this July.
Thanks for voting in the Dead Good Reader Awards – we couldn’t do it without you!
