Sisters in Crime Announce Davitt Awards

This year 39 crime books competed for the Davitt Awards which were set up by Sisters in Crime in 2001 to celebrate the achievements of Australian women crime writers. Justice Betty King presented the awards to a crowd of 140 at the Celtic Club. For the third year running, the awards were sponsored by the Victoria Police Museum.

Beautiful Place To Die (PanMacmillan), the debut novel by Sydney-based filmmaker turned crime writer, Malla Nunn, tonight won Sisters in Crime’s Davitt Awards for the best (adult) crime novel by an Australian woman in 2008.

Blue Mountains writer Catherine Jinks took out the Davitt (young adult) for Genius Squad (Allen & Unwin)

Stephen King is literally the 'Master of Horror', but if you have read everything he's written and you're looking for new authors try Dean Koontz's SHATTERED , THE ICE HOUSE by Minette Walters, F.

Envy the Night

Indiana author Michael Koryta last night won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in the Mystery/Thriller category for his 2008 novel, ENVY THE NIGHT.

Check Out Some Suspense!

One of my favorite types of books are suspense novels that quickly draw you in and keep you guessing until the very end. I always lose sleep whenever Nicci French comes out with a new book because I just can't seem to stop turning those pages! Check out her newest offering, Until It's Over.
