Theakstons Crime Novel of the Year 2014 – Longlist


Thanks to Karen at Euro Crime recently I found out the 18 titles included in the longlist for the 2014 Theakstons Crime Novel of the Year Award. The full list is available here. I’ve read so far 7 books in this list. You can access my reviews by clicking on the book title. And I may probably have the opportunity to read some other titles in due time. It seems to me there are some excellent books.

Rubbernecker, Belinda Bauer, Transworld Publishers

The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter, Malcolm Mackay, Pan Macmillan

The Chessmen, Peter May, Quercus

I Hear The Sirens In The Street, Adrian McKinty, Profile Books. Spanish title: Oigo sirenas en la calle, Alianza, 2014

Ratlines, Stuart Neville, Vintage, Random House

Standing in Another Man’s Grave, Ian Rankin, Orion. Spanish title: Sobre su tumba, RBA, 2013

Eleven Days, Stav Sherez, Faber & Faber

The names of the six short listed titles will be announced on 1 July and the readers will be able to help decide which of the six short listed authors will take home the most coveted title in crime fiction, a prize of £3,000 and a hand-carved Theakstons cask, by casting your vote online.

    1. Thanks for your comment. I certainly agree with you that I would be very much surprised not see both books, Rubbernecker and The Chessmen on the short list.
