Twenty years after the appearance of his first published short story, One Hit Wonder, Shamus Award-winner J.L. Abramo has assembled a collection of his previously published short crime fiction along with never before published stories and writings about writing in this anthology.
From the streets of Brooklyn and Denver; from Los Angeles to San Francisco; from private eyes and police detectives to con men and mob bosses; from mystery to thriller to noir; Abramo’s short stories display a vivid sense of location and a masterful understanding of the triumphs and tragedies of characters on both sides of the law.
“Think it is impossible to find a new take on the wise-cracking San Francisco PI? Meet Jake Diamond and think again.” —S.J. Rozan, Edgar Award-winning author of Absent Friends
“If grit, hard guys, and the rhythm of the mean streets is your thing, J.L. Abramo is your man.” —Reed Farrel Coleman, Shamus Award-winning author of Where It Hurts
