Dagger in the Library

The Dagger in the Library (Golden Handcuffs in 1994-1996) is an annual award given by the British Crime Writers' Association to a particular author. The award is given to a "living author who has given the most pleasure to readers".[1] Yearly shortlists are drawn up from submissions by libraries across United Kingdom, and the final decision is made by a panel of librarians. The award is currently sponsored by the Random House and consists of an ornamental dagger and £1500 prize-money.
