Synopsis:

On the heels of the stunning success of the Summer '04 award-winning bestseller Brooklyn Noir, this second volume digs deeper into the criminal history of New York's punchiest and most alluring borough. Brooklyn Noir 2 offers short stories by the classic authors who blazed the path for the success of the first volume, which award-winning mystery author Laura Lippman called, "a stunningly perfect combination . . . the writing is flat-out superb, filled with lines that will sing in your head for a long time to come." Brooklyn Noir was featured in every media outlet in New York City (including two New York Times features and an appearance on the Leonard Lopate NPR radio show), as well as publications and media all across the country (and the UK, Australia, Italy, etc.).

Once again 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 to ever 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.

Contributors:H.P. Lovecraft, Lawrence Block, Donald Westlake, Pete Hamill, Jonathan Lethem, Colson Whitehead, Carolyn Wheat, Thomas Wolfe, Hubert Selby, Jr., Stanley Ellin, Gilbert Sorrentino, Maggie Estep, Salvatore La Puma, and Irwin Shaw.

From the Publisher

Review:
"BROOKLYN NOIR is such a stunningly perfect combination that you can't believe you haven't read an anthology like this before. But trust me--you haven't. Story after story is a revelation, filled with the requisite sense of place, but also the perfect twists that crime stories demand. The writing is flat-out superb, filled with lines that will sing in your head for a long time to come." --Laura Lippman, winner of the Edgar, Shamus, and Agatha awards

"You want real? Leave the white collar at home and come to Brooklyn. The stories in this astonishingly diverse collection will pull you out onto the street, maybe even rough you up a little. And you'll love it. Edgy, sly, and at times downright eye-popping, BROOKLYN NOIR takes you on an ultra-cool walking tour of NYC's hippest borough." --Tim Cockey, author of BACKSTABBER

"For fans of noir, for fans of Brooklyn, for fans of just plain old great writing--this is the book for you, or, rather, I should say, you'se." --Jonathan Ames, author of WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?
