Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Edited by, S.J. Rozan. This award-winning series of original noir anthologies was launched in 2004 with BROOKLYN NOIR. Each book is comprised of all-new stories, each one set in a district neighborhood or location within the city of the book. Here, best-selling crime writer S.J. Rozan corrals a diverse crew of celebrated authors to highlight the dark magnificence of her native New York City borough. "The Bronx had been home to big time gangsters from the Jewish organized crime of Murder Inc. and the Italian Cosa Nostra to the equally organized drug-dealing gangstas of today. Many places in the Bronx seem hidden in shadows, just as the Bronx itself is in Manhattan's shadows"-S.J.Rozan.

Review:

"'Akashic's latest city-themed crime anthology successfully captures the immense diversity of the Bronx, from the mean streets of the South Bronx to affluent Riverdale, in 19 tales by authors both well known and obscure. The most imaginative entry, Joseph Wallace's 'The Big Five,' about a hunter who targets his prey in the Bronx Zoo as part of a national contest, concludes with a satisfying noir twist. Lawrence Block's Riverdale story, 'Rude Awakening,' also surprises the reader with its clever resolution of a one-night stand. Particularly inventive is Kevin Baker's grim 'The Cheers Like Waves,' set in the shadow of Yankee Stadium. Rozan, herself a contributor, has put together one of the series' better entries, with memorable tales of betrayal and despair that reflect the borough's varied ethnic populations and geography.' Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

S.J. Rozan, Lawrence Block, Kevin Baker, Jerome Charyn, and others brawl with New York City's most rugged borough.
