Format: Paperback
"Your father picks you up from prison in a stolen Dodge Neon with an eight-ball in the glove compartment and a hooker named Mandy in the back seat." This is the riveting opening line from a marvellous short story by Dennis Lehane - one of seventeen contributions from seventeen masters of contemporary crime fiction - including also Mark Billingham, Lawrence Block, Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, John Harvey (who edited the collection too), Reginald Hill, George Pelecanos, and Peter Robinson.

From the rat-infested trenches of the First World War near Passchendaele to the present day mean streets of Los Angeles, New York and Washington DC and elsewhere these gripping stories explore the bonds of friends and family. Little is perfect in these relationships - murder, robbery, fraud, revenge and more are on the menu.

John Harvey is to be congratulated on editing an exciting and truly excellent collection with something to suit all fans of the genre. Very satisfying and highly recommended.
