“Martin Edwards is not only a fine writer but he is also ridiculously knowledgeable about the field of crime and suspense fiction.  He wears his learning lightly and is always the most congenial company.  He is also a great champion of crime writing and crime writers.  He is a fitting winner of the Diamond Dagger.”

– Ian Rankin
