New York City author and TV screenwriter Megan Abbott has won the 2022 Los Angeles Times Book Prize in the Mystery/Thriller category for her 2021 novel, The Turnout. That announcement was made last evening to kick off the 27th L.A. Times Festival of Books.

Also in contention for the same honor were The Dark Hours, by Michael Connelly (Little, Brown); Razorblade Tears, by S.A. Cosby (Flatiron); The Collective, by Alison Gaylin (Morrow); and Velvet Was the Night, by Silvia Moreno-Garcia (Del Rey).
