HARDBOILDED CORNER: CRIME SQUARE!

HARDBOILDED CORNER: CRIME SQUARE!

EDITED BY ROBERT J. RANDISI

They call it the “crossroads of the world,” and from its inception Times Square has been the pulsing heartbeat of a city filled with life. Now, in this eclectic and electrifying collection, twenty acclaimed mystery writers take readers into the past history of Times Square, where danger lurked around every corner, and where characters walked its streets with the easy confidence of a con man. Spanning over one hundred years—from its christening on April 19, 1904 to the contemporary “Disney-ized” version, Crime Square is filled with guys, dolls, booze, and bullets. With contributions by such award-winning authors like Parnell Hall, John Lutz - and a host of others - CRIME SQUARE is the ultimate collection of crime stories, set in the world’s ultimate destination.
