The Southern California Independent Booksellers Association (SCIBA) announced the T. Jefferson Parker Award for Mystery last week, aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach. The 2012 award went to Don Winslow for Kings of Cool (Simon & Schuster). This award recognizes excellence in books that reflect Southern California culture
or lifestyle, with authors living within the SCIBA region.
The mystery award is named after T. Jefferson Parker, a life-long resident of Southern California and Edgar Award-winning author.
