- ALY MONROE
Icelight - Winner of the 2012 CWA Ellis Peters Historical Dagger
From the CWA website:
‘The judges all loved the book and it was their unanimous decision to award it the Dagger. They said “This tale of British post-war malaise the third of Monroe’s Peter Cotton thrillers, is authentically downbeat yet absolutely gripping. Monroe has the young le Carré’s ability to conjure atmosphere and a poetic style worthy of Len Deighton.”’
Speaking, just after receiving the award, in the library at One Birdcage Walk where the CWA Daggers Award Dinner was held.
I was absolutely delighted to be awarded the CWA Ellis Peters Historical Dagger this year. A big thank you to the CWA and all the judges.
