The CWA has announced the 2012 winner of its prestigious Diamond Dagger award, with the honour going to thriller writer Frederick Forsyth.

Chair of the CWA Peter James said, "Frederick Forsyth is a hugely deserving recipient and The Day of the Jackal remains one of the greatest thrillers of our times. He has set a new standard of research-based authenticity with his writing, which has had a major influence both on my work and on many of my contemporaries in the crime and thriller field. We are very thrilled that he has accepted this award."
