    Paperback Description:

    Akashic Books announces Brooklyn novelist Tim McLoughlin as the editor of the anthology (in addition to his contributing a story). McLoughlin’s respect on any Brooklyn street predates the publication of his debut novel Heart of the Old Country (Akashic, 2001), a selection of the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Program that was hailed by Entertainment Weekly as an inspired cross between Richard Price and Ross McDonald. For years, McLoughlin has worked in the Kings County Supreme Court in downtown Brooklyn.

    Contributors include Pete Hamill, Nelson George, Kenji Jasper, Sidney Offit, Arthur Nersesian, Pearl Abraham, Ellen Miller, Maggie Estep, Adam Mansbach, CJ Sullivan, Chris Niles, Norman Kelley, and many others.

    A collection of crime stories set in different Brooklyn neighborhoods, edited by Mr. McLoughlin…The stories are set far and wide in the borough, from Red Hook to Bushwick to Canarsie…Brooklyn has always occupied a special place in the imagination of America writers, who have been captivated by its raffishness. —New York Times
