Award Wins: The Long Call and The Tradition


The Long Call won the Agatha award for best contemporary mystery Sunday night. It’s voted on by readers of traditional crime fiction who attend the Malice Domestic convention in the US every year. This year, obviously, it was done digitally. She was up against some pretty impressive competition, including Louise Penny! A very lovely win for our darling author, Ann Cleeves.
