Bloody Scotland International Crime Writing Festival are delighted to reveal the shortlist for Crime Debut of 2021.
The Silent Daughter by Emma Christie (Wellbeck)
No Harm Done by Alistair Liddle (Self Published)
Edge of the Grave by Robbie Morrison (Macmillan)
Waking the Tiger by Mark Wightman (Hobeck Books)
The winner will be judged by Janice Forysth from BBC Radio Scotland, Simon Lloyd from Waterstones and Kenny Tweeddale from sponsors, the Glencairn Glass. It is the second year that both awards have been sponsored by the Glencairn Glass – the world’s favourite whisky glass.
After a year in which all authors, but particularly debut authors, suffered from bookshops being closed and festivals being cancelled, Bloody Scotland are delighted to continue to celebrate the very best in debut crime fiction. Congratulations to all!
Three of the books on this year’s McIlvanney Prize longlist have made the shortlist for this year’s Bloody Scotland Scottish Crime Debut of the Year. The Silent Daughter by Emma Christie, Edge of the Grave by Robbie Morrison and Waking the Tiger by Mark Wightman.
