Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Crime Novel

Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Crime Novel

We are thrilled to celebrate Liam McIlvanney as the 2014 winner of the prestigious Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Crime Novel for his exceptional thriller Where the Dead Men Go.

Judging Convener Craig Sisterson praised Where the Dead Men Go as the ‘kind of book that lingers in your mind beyond the final page’.

Liam said, ‘I am utterly delighted to win this award. These are great times for New Zealand crime writing – the genre is building a real head of steam, as the quality of the Ngaio Marsh longlist confirms. To win the Ngaio Marsh in such a strong and diverse field is a tremendous honour.’

New Zealand Director Melanie Laville-Moore expressed, ‘Allen & Unwin is hugely delighted to see Liam’s work receive this honour. Where the Dead Men Go is modern crime-writing at its very best, and to have this acknowledged by Liam’s New Zealand peers and by the award judges is terrific news indeed.’

The B-Format of Where the Dead Men Go hits stores this November.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
