Winslow Lands the Falcon

This is shaping up to be a good season for author Don Winslow.

Last month his novel Savages won the Southern California Independent Booksellers Association’s 2011 T. Jefferson Parker Book Award.

Now The Gumshoe Site brings word that Japan’s Maltese Falcon Society has given one of Winslow’s earlier works, The Winter of Frankie Machine (2006), its 2011 Maltese Falcon Award. That commendation is presented to “the best hard-boiled/private eye novel published in the previous year in Japan.”
