Derringer award winning "The Kaluki Kings of Queens" inside

Come meet the relatives in Family Matters: Murder New York Style. These twenty short stories by members of the New York / Tri-State chapter of Sisters in Crime are as diverse in theme and mood as the city itself. They take us from the explosive excitement of the New York City Marathon to a secret cellar in Queens; from the warmth of an immigrant culture to the moneyed New York art world; from brutality and poverty to Wall Street's privileged thugs. What the families have in common is this: their lives have been changed forever by crime. Motives? The usual: jealousy and greed, rage and revenge, self-protection and politics, secrets and lies. No Metrocard or E-ZPass required to tour these neighborhoods.

These urban short stories offer murder, action, suspense, and mystery that ranges in tone from fun to dark and in genre from cozy to noir. The amateur sleuths, police officers, private investigators, and female protagonists who grapple with crime in this anthology are richly drawn and engagingly authentic.

Review:

This third anthology of the New York/Tri-State Chapter of Sisters-in-Crime contains established authors alongside the up-and-coming. The spirit of New York and its ethnicities...is captured in a collection that highlights the darkest facets of family life. ...Whether dark or humorous, these tales are as fascinating as they are entertaining. All are at a superior level of writing from the best of an organization created to support female mystery writers.--Cynthia Chow, Kings River Life

These stories present a nice mix of murder, mayhem, and suspense as well as a good mix of protagonists: amateur sleuths, professional investigators, cops. Although some stories are darker in tone than others, each has its own fascination that will keep the reader turning pages until the very end.--Cherie Jung, Over My Dead Body!
