The Southern California Independent Booksellers Association (SCIBA) has announced that author-screenwriter Noah Hawley has won the 2016 T. Jefferson Parker Mystery Award for his novel Before the Fall (Grand Central Publishing). Also vying for that prize were Orphan X, by Gregg Hurwitz (Minotaur), and The Promise, by Robert Crais (Putnam).
The Parker Award is one of one of seven annual literary commendations sponsored by the SCIBA. This year’s winners were named during the SCIBA Trade Show in Los Angeles, October 21-22.
