The ITV3 People’s Bestseller Dagger

1 Mins read

The triple amalgam of the Crime Writers Association, Specsavers and ITV3 are currently polling readers – you are being called on to vote for your favourite thriller writer of 2011. You can vote for Peter James, Lee Child, Mark Billingham, David Baldacci or Peter Robinson. Interestingly, no female authors made their shortlist this year.

The award will be given tomorrow night at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, alongside several other Daggers. Voting closes at 9am tomorrow morning, so be sure to cast your vote here before the poll closes.

A series of television crime show awards will also be handed out at the event, as well as The CWA Gold Dagger, Steel Dagger and New Blood Dagger. You can see the shortlists for those awards here.
