Dundurn is pleased to announce that Death’s Shadow by Jon Wells has been nominated for the 21st Annual Hamilton Arts Council Literary Award in the nonfiction category. Well’s acclaimed work of true crime will compete with Blood by Lawrence Hill and This House is Condemned by David Haskins for the top prize.

An in-depth and riveting look into for different homicide investigations in Hamilton, Death’s Shadow is the sixth book by the award-winning Hamilton Spectator journalist. Wells has previously won two National Newspaper Awards and several Ontario Newspaper Awards, and his book Post-Mortem was shortlisted for an Arthur Ellis Award.

Sponsored by the Hamilton Arts Council, the Hamilton Arts Council Literary Awards celebrate and honour the city’s best books and authors.  Winners of this year’s awards are scheduled to be announced on January 5, 2015 in the Norman and Louise Haac Studio Theatre at the Dofasco Centre for the Arts. The event is open to the public and admission is PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN.
