Dead Good Reader Awards 2019

It’s time to have your say!

The Dead Good Reader Awards celebrate the very best in crime writing. Last year you crowned the authors behind the best small town mysteries, dysfunctional families and books that kept you guessing. This year we’re back with six new categories!

The first step is the nomination process; simply tell us who’d you pick as your winners using the form below. In order to qualify, books must have been published in any format within the past year. The books with the most nominations will form the shortlists and go to a public vote, with winners announced at the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate in July.

These are the only awards where you, the readers, are in complete control – so what are you waiting for? Nominate now and you’ll be entered into our prize draw for the chance to win £100 worth of thrilling crime books!

Nominations have now closed and are currently being counted. Check back soon for the shortlist reveals!
