Slices of life beyond the tourist's view.
By turns funny, tough, and somber, the twenty-one helpings of New York attitude in Fresh Slices reveal neighborhoods both rich and poor, where old-timers desperately protect their secrets and brand-new arrivals indulge dangerous appetites. There is as much variety in the tones, settings, and approaches as in Gotham itself, and yet each of these crime stories also reflects the city's most infectious and unifying principle, that special combination of adaptability and assertiveness dished out more often than any pizza or street meat.
In this, Fresh Slices’ second edition, urban short stories offer action-packed mystery that moves from cozy to noir. The sleuths, police officers and investigators who grapple with crime in these pages are richly drawn and engagingly authentic. Written by local members of the New York / Tri-State chapter of Sisters in Crime the anthology and edited by Agatha nominee Terrie Farley Moran, Fresh Slices is second in the Murder New York series and features tales from the most ethnically diverse and densely populated city in America.
