Publisher Comments:

Fiction. TWIN CITIES NOIR is an anthology of brand-new stories by David Housewright, Steve Thayer, Judith Guest, Mary Louge, Bruce Rubenstein, K.J. Erickson, William Kent Krueger, Ellen Hart, Brad Zellar, Mary Sharratt, Pete Hautman, Larry Millett, Quinton Skinner, Gary Bush, and Chris Everheart. "St. Paul was originally called Pig's Eye's Landing and was named after Pig's Eye Parrant--trapper, moonshiner, and proprietor of the most popular drinking establishment on the Mississippi...By the turn of the twentieth century [Minneapolis] was considered one of the most crooked cities in the nation [and] as recently as the mid-'90s, Minneapolis was called "Murderopolis" due to a rash of killings that occurred over a long hot summer...Every city has its share of crime, but what makes the Twin Cities unique may be that we have more than our share of good writers to chronicle it. They are homegrown and they know the territory..."--From the Introducion.
