Joffe Books have announced the shortlist for the Joffe Books Prize for Crime Writers of Colour 2022! The second Joffe Books Prize received a flood of fantastic entrants. Completely anonymised for judging, the pool of scripts covered the gamut of gritty police procedurals to wrenching domestic suspense, evocative historical mysteries to page-turning cosies.
Out of the longlist of twenty, five really stood out, forming the official shortlist:
The Labelled Bones by FQ Yeoh
Everyone Is Going To Know by Kingsley Pearson
The Smiling Mandarin by Mai Le Dinh
Red Obsession by Rose Lorimer
Savage Territory by Sam Genever
The winner will be announced in January 2023.
