About this title


Murder Rides the Elevator Her scream stunned the residents of the Brooklyn neighborhood. In 1930, even Brooklyn Heights had been rocked by the twin calamities: Prohibition and The Depression. But murder escalated the fear factor. Did the threat come from the male tenants of The Remsen Hotel? Or was the danger from the rough Navy Yard community below? Now it is up to cops from the 86th Precinct, a police lieutenant, a sergeant and a private detective to unravel the mystery. With scenes reminiscent of a black-and-white B movie, The Brooklyn Heights Crime Series of novellas kicks off with the characters plying the streets of the palisaded neighborhood in the sordid years between the world wars when the very foundations of civilization were being threatened. Written by a former Brooklyn Borough Historian who was there and should know. The series will be set in various historic locales in Brooklyn Heights and neighboring communities, all set in the 1930s with a different novella being released every several months. The basic characters include Lt. Jared Lewis and Sgt. Dan Murphy with Nate Thomaston, a private detective, Lars Jenkins, a reporter from The Brooklyn Eagle, and assorted hangers-on. The covers will have the same logo with different inserts.

About the Author:

John B. Manbeck, a former Brooklyn Borough Historian and professor of English, has written and edited books and articles on Brooklyn since the 1970s. His role in creating The Kingsborough Historical Society has been supplemented by his lectures for the New York Council for the Humanities and his role on several advisory boards. This diversion into writing fiction is a natural extension of his interest in local history.
