Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From four of today’s hottest fantasy authors—all-new novellas of dark nights, cruel cities, and paranormal P.I.s.

View our feature on Mean Streets. The best paranormal private investigators have been brought together in a single volume—and cases don’t come any harder than this.

New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher delivers a hard-boiled tale in which Harry Dresden’s latest case may be his last.

Nightside dweller John Taylor is hired by a woman to find something she lost—her memory—in a thrilling noir tale from New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green.

National bestselling author Kat Richardson’s Greywalker finds herself in too deep when a “simple job” goes bad and Harper Blaine is enmeshed in a tangle of dark secrets and revenge from beyond the grave.

For centuries, the being that we know as Noah lived among us. Now he is dead, and fallen-angel-turned-detective Remy Chandler has been hired to find out who killed him in a whodunit by national bestselling author Thomas E. Sniegoski.

Review:

"Readers will be delighted with this collection of original novellas tied to popular crime/fantasy series. The standout is Sniegoski's 'Noah's Orphans,' in which angel PI Remy Chandler must solve the murder of the biblical Ark's builder, whose battered corpse is found on an abandoned oil rig. Sniegoski manages to make a far-fetched setup both plausible and moving. Butcher's 'The Warrior' hints at a mysterious ongoing war, while wizard detective Harry Dresden solves a case with typical dry wit. Green employs darker humor in 'The Difference a Day Makes,' in which PI John Taylor assists a woman who wandered into the dark world hidden within London, while Richardson's 'The Third Death of the Little Clay Dog' neatly merges noir conventions with a fantastical plot. All solid and suspenseful, these stories are sure to please." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
