The creator of Jack Reacher has won the award for his outstanding body of work, and in 2012 saw A Wanted Man, his 17th Reacher novel published. At the end of the year, the film Reacher was released starring Tom Cruise in the unlikely role of Child’s hulking hero.

A diamond-studded dagger will be presented to Lee Child at a dinner in the summer. Previous winners have included Val McDermid, Ian Rankin, Elmore Leonard and Frederick Forsyth. Founded in 1953, the CWA also celebrates its diamond jubilee this year.
