Slices of life beyond the tourist's view. By turns funny, tough, and somber, the twenty-one helpings of New York attitude in Fresh Slices reveal neighborhoods both rich and poor, where oldtimers desperately protect their secrets and brand new arrivals indulge dangerous appetites. There is as much variety in tone and setting as in Gotham itself, and yet each of these crime stories also reflects the city's most infectious and unifying principle, that special combination of adaptability and assertiveness. The sleuths, police officers, and investigators in these pages are richly drawn and engagingly authentic. Written by local members of the New York / Tri-State chapter of Sisters in Crime, and edited by Agatha Award winning author Terrie Farley Moran, Fresh Slices is second in the Murder New York Style series and features tales from the most ethnically diverse and densely populated city in America.
