Sunset Swing Shortlisted for the Gold Dagger and the Historical Dagger by the CWA

The CWA has shortlisted Sunset Swing for both the Gold Dagger and the Historical Dagger. I’m absolutely chuffed that the book has been recognised in this way. Many thanks to everyone at the CWA for the honour. Here’s what the CWA’s Gold Dagger judges said:

“A murderous figure from the past re-emerges in the epic closing act of the outstanding City Blues Quartet set in Los Angeles at the end of 1967. A cast of original fictional characters mingle with historic figures on Celestin’s biggest and most evocative canvas yet. This is a book bursting with heart, soul and spirit, at once all-encompassing and intimate, superbly paced and immaculately constructed.”
