Lawrence Block has won most of the major mystery awards, and has been called the quintessential New York writer, although he insists the city’s far too big to have a quintessential writer. His series charactersMatthew Scudder, Bernie Rhodenbarr, Evan Tanner, Chip Harrison, and Kellerall live in Manhattan; like their creator, they wouldn’t really be happy anywhere else.
"A pleasing variety of Manhattan neighborhoods come to life in Block's solid anthology...the writing is of a high order and a nice mix of styles."
"Feel the dread, the angled shadow, the sidelong quicks, the pitter-patter of running blood, the femme fatales' will she/won’t she/she did, the creep of the heel, and the stone causes the hitch and the hitch and the stumble. Manhattan Noir’s got it all and then some...Thick with tradition, rich with revelation, and as sweet as Hard Crime itself, Manhattan Noir is just desserts indeed. Dig in."
"[A] thrilling new anthology in the Noir series from Akashic Books . . . This latest addition to the Noir family takes a sizable bite out of the big apple."
Future MYSTERY Anthology Magazine
