Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award 2008 winner announced

13-Jul-2008 • Literary

Following the annual Steel Dagger Awards Dinner, which took place on Thursday 10th July, the 2008 CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger award winner has been announced.

The dagger and £2000 prize money are awarded for the best adventure/thriller novel in the vein of James Bond.

Tom Rob Smith - Child 44 (published by Simon & Schuster)

“This powerful debut evokes the double unthink disorientation and paranoia of the Stalinist era, while never losing sight of the more intimate story. Location and period take it a notch above the usual serial killer narrative".

Uniquely for this award, the judges have Highly Commended David Stone for The Echelon Vendetta (Penguin).
