The shortlist for the £25,000 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction has been announced, after a process the Judges describe as 'the toughest choice, from the strongest longlist, in the Prize's five year history.'

The shortlist is:

LIFE AFTER LIFE Kate Atkinson

THE LUMINARIES Eleanor Catton

HARVEST by Jim Crace

FAIR HELEN by Andrew Greig

AN OFFICER AND A SPY by Robert Harris
