Persia Walker joins bestselling suspense novelist Mary Higgins Clark in inviting you on a tour of Manhattan’s most iconic neighborhoods in this anthology of all-new stories from the Mystery Writers of America. From the Flatiron District (Lee Child) and Greenwich Village (Jeffery Deaver) to Little Italy (T. Jefferson Parker) and Chinatown (S.J. Rozan), you’ll encounter crimes, mysteries, and riddles large and small. Illustrated with iconic photography of New York City and packaged in a handsome hardcover, Manhattan Mayhem is a delightful read for armchair detectives and armchair travelers alike!
I’m giving away a copy of the audiobook version of Darkness and the Devil Behind Me. The contest starts tomorrow and will run for one week.
Marti has uploaded the last of the files for the audiobook version of Black Orchid Blues. It’s always interesting to hear other people’s interpretation of your work. In this case, it’s quite pleasant. She has a knack for characterization, for catching the way a character sounded in my head when I was writing.
I found her at ACX. Truth be told, she found me. She began writing to me about Darkness and the Devil Behind Me. She was the first person to have shown any real interest in the project in quite some time. And she was good. I did listen to other auditions, and there were quite a few good ones, but for some reason, her voice stayed with me.
And so now, here we are. First Darkness. Now, Black Orchid Blues. I hope people will enjoy them.
Johnny Temple over at Akashic Books, by the way, was great about letting me use the wonderful cover Akashic designed for Black Orchid Blues. Meanwhile, I did a new cover for Darkness. Hope everyone likes it.
