Thursday 29th April 2021

Congratulations to Mara Timon, who has been shortlisted for the 2021 Specsavers Crime Fiction Debut Award for her debut novel CITY OF SPIES (Bonnier).

CRIMEFEST presents its award for a crime novel by debut author first published in the United Kingdom in 2020. Previously unpublished authors bring vital fresh blood to the genre, and CRIMEFEST and Specsavers aim to highlight that contribution with this award.

The winning author receives a £1,000 prize (courtesy of headline sponsor Specsavers), a Bristol Blue Glass commemorative award, and a complimentary pass and panel appearance at the next CRIMEFEST.
