Robert Crais and Carolyn Hart have been named as the recipients of this year's Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award. The MWA (whose motto is "Crime Doesn't Pay...Enough") will present the awards along with the rest of the Edgar Awards at next year's awards banquet in New York City on May 1.
You can read full details, including reactions from the newly-named Grand Masters, in the MWA news release. Congratulations to both - the awards are extremely well-deserved.
The MWA also named the winner of its special Raven Award which will go this year to an independent book store, Aunt Agatha's, of Ann Arbor Michigan.
