Elmore Leonard wins Diamond Dagger

The Crime Writers' Association has awarded its Cartier Diamond Dagger for 2006 to American novelist, Elmore Leonard.

Leonard will be making a rare visit to London for the presentation of the award and said: "This is great news, by far the best kind of achievement award, to be recognised by fellow writers for the one thing I have ever wanted to do in my life, tell stories, what I've been doing for the past 55 years. I see the Diamond Dagger giving me a boost of energy, telling me to make the book I'm writing now the best one yet."
