Crais Hits It Big in Japan

As Jiro Kimura reports today on The Gumshoe Site, Robert Crais’ 2015 novel, The Promise, has “won the 2018 Maltese Falcon Award as the best hard-boiled/private eye novel published in the previous year in Japan. The winning Elvis Cole/Joe Pike novel also features Scott James and his K-9 partner Maggie from Suspect (2013).”

The Falcon Award is presented by Japan’s Maltese Falcon Society. A rundown of previous winners can be found here.
