It's curtains for Gotham in Deadly Debut, which takes the first bow in the Murder New York Style series. In these pages, a Bronx teen steeped in Poe confronts a tormentor; a recovering alcoholic sweeps up deadly secrets; and a gutsy lie shatters lives in post-war Queens. From a Brooklyn nanny's street smarts to a small grocer's grit, from a nightclub's belly dancers to a P.I. reared on jive, the characters in these twisted tales will keep you cheering.Written by members of the New York / Tri-State chapter of Sisters in Crime, the stories reveal New York City's dark and dramatic underbelly. Selected from the Chapter's first anthology, they offer bites of action-packed mystery that range in tone from fun to dark and in genre from cozy to noir. These sleuths, police officers, and private investigators are richly drawn and engagingly authentic.
