Fiction. On the heels of the stunning success of the summer 2004 bestseller BROOKLYN NOIR, this second volume digs deeper into the criminal history of New York's punchiest and most alluring borough. In BROOKLYN NOIR 2, each story is set in a distinct Brooklyn neighborhood and mixes masters of genre with some of the best literary fiction writers ever to set foot in the borough. These brilliant and chilling stories see crime striking in communities of Russians, Jamaicans, Puerto Ricans, Italians, Irish and many other ethnicities--in the most diverse urban location on the planet. Tim McLoughlin is the author of HEART OF THE OLD COUNTRY and editor of the classic BROOKLYN NOIR, also available from SPD.
