Where Crime Never Sleeps

What is the essence of the New York experience? A stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge? A concert at Carnegie Hall? Crossing the finish line at the New York Marathon? A trip to the Bronx Zoo? Or any one of these—plus murder? These seventeen stories by members of the New York/Tri-State Chapter of Sisters in Crime, with a foreword by Margaret Maron, explore the mystery and mayhem that lurk in every corner of the most unpredictable, irrepressible, inimitable city on the planet. “A clever, bloody, triumphant celebration of the shady side of the New York state of mind. The settings may sound familiar to residents and tourist alike, but each story serves up a unique dish of literary deviousness flavored with the darkest desires, the boldest crimes, and the most tangled mysteries imaginable. After devouring this collection of stories, readers will find they can’t wait to visit the Big City, armed with the secret knowledge of the crime writers who know it best.” —Laura Benedict, Edgar-nominated author of the Bliss House novels
