The Gumshoe Site tells us that California author Don Winslow won the 2016 Falcon Award from The Maltese Falcon Society Japan for MISSING: NEW YORK (2014, no American or British editions published) as the best hardboiled/private eye novel published in Japan in the previous year. 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 is Winslow's fourth Falcon win, after A COOL BREEZE ON THE
UNDERGROUND; THE POWER OF THE DOG; and THE WINTER OF FRANKIE MACHINE.
FYI: The Missing is not available in English. I found both German and Italian editions.
