Thank you for your votes for the Theakson’s Old Peculier Crime Thriller of the Year Award for which Not Dead Enough was nominated. As you may have read, we just lost on the final judging committee decision to Stef Penney for The Tenderness Of Wolves.

As this is the third award in a row for which I have been a shortlisted finalist and not won, I’m beginning to feel like Martin Scorsese, forever being nominated for an Oscar and not winning! But hey, with wonderfully supportive readers like you, who needs awards…????!
