From The Guardian:

Master of horror Stephen King has won America’s top crime-writing award for his turn away from the supernatural, serial killer thriller Mr Mercedes.

The novel, in which a retired cop is taunted by the perpetrator of a massacre he never managed to solve, sees King steer clear of paranormal elements to focus on a very human evil. It beat titles by more traditional practitioners of crime writing including Ian Rankin, Stuart Neville and Karin Slaughter to be named best novel at the Edgar Awards in New York last night.
