Audible Sounds of Crime Award at CrimeFest

CrimeFest, a new international crime fiction convention featuring interviews, panels, a Gala Dinner, and possibly one or two surprises, takes place in Bristol next month. Many of the world’s top crime novelists such as Ian Rankin, Karin Fossum, Jeff Lindsay and David Hewson will be attending.

CrimeFest will be presenting two awards: the Last Laugh Award for best humorous crime novel, and the Audible Sounds of Crime Award for best crime audiobook. Registered delegates and Audible Listeners have nominated the crime audiobook they most liked listening to in 2007.

The shortlist is:

  • Blaze by Richard Bachman, read by Ron McLarty (unabridged)
  • Bad Luck & Trouble by Lee Child, read by Kerry Shale
  • The Mephisto Club by Tess Gerritsen, read by Lorelei King
  • The Seventh Sacrament by David Hewson, read by Saul Reichlin (unabridged)
  • Exit Music by Ian Rankin, read by James Macpherson

The awards will be presented at the Gala Dinner on Saturday, the 7th of June and an award will be given to both the author and the reader of the winning entry.
