For the second year in a row, author Don Winslow has captured the T. Jefferson Parker Award for Mystery from the Southern California Independent Booksellers Association. That announcement was made on October 20 during the annual Authors Feast & Trade Show, held aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.
Winslow’s win this time is for The Kings of Cool (Simon & Schuster), the prequel to Savages, which picked up the Parker prize last year. Also nominated for this 2012 commendation were Getaway, by Lisa Brackmann (Soho Press), and Taken, by Robert Crais (Putnam).
