CWA Margery Allingham Short Mystery Prize 2022

Popped down the M4 to Bristol yesterday to attend CrimeFest 2022 where the CWA Dagger Awards Shortlists were due to be announced along with the Margery Allingham Short Mystery Award. Very surprised and chuffed to be announced as the winner, so many thanks to the Margery Allingham Society for choosing ‘Locked In’, the concept for which has been flitting between my disparate neuronal junctions for quite a while. As you can imagine, I’m very glad that I finally committed it to paper – or laptop, to be more precise – and that the Society considered it to be the overall best mystery of 2022.
