Keep your secrets close and your daggers drawn.
This first retrospective of the CWA’s Dagger Award winners brings together some of the greatest names in crime fiction to deliver a cutthroat collection of serial killers, grizzled detectives, drug dealers, and master forgers.

Here are nineteen CWA Dagger Award-winning short stories from the best of the best in crime fiction.
