Winslow Wins Again

Jiro Kimura of The Gumshoe Site reports that California author Don Winslow has won this year’s Falcon Award for his 2014 novel, Missing: New York (which is available in a German-language edition, but evidently not yet in an English translation). The Falcon, given out by Japan’s Maltese Falcon Society, is meant to honor “the best hard-boiled/private eye novel published in Japan in the previous year.”

This marks Winslow’s fourth Falcon victory. He won the same prize in 1994 for A Cool Breeze on the Underground, in 2010 for The Power of the Dog, and in 2011 for The Winter of Frankie Machine.
